Installing your License

  1. Start LMTOOLS (Click Start > All Programs > Autodesk > Autodesk Network License Manager > LMTOOLS Utility).
  2. On the Service/License File tab, click Configuration using Services, and select the Force LMTOOLS to ignore license file path environment variables check box.
  3. Click the Config Services tab.
  4. In the Service Name box, type a name for the license server service. For example, Softimage Flexlm Service. You can use the default Flexlm Service 1 name if you want.
  5. Beside the Path to the lmgrd.exe file box, click Browse and locate the lmgrd.exe file. By default, this file is located in C:\Program Files\Autodesk Network License Manager\.
  6. Beside the Path to the license file box, click Browse and locate the .lic file you downloaded when you activated your license.
  7. Beside the Path to the debug log file box, click Browse and type a name for the log file. The file does not have to exist, LMTOOLS will automatically create the file.
  8. Click the Use Services check box.
  9. Click the Start Server at Power Up check box.
  10. Click Save Service.
  11. Click the Start/Stop/Reread tab and click Start Server.

To confirm that your license server is really up and running, go to the Server Status tab and click Perform Status Enquiry.
