Then browse the list of services to find the “LSTC License Manager”.
If you open the “LSTC License Manager,” then you will see the full path to the “lstclm.exe” executable, which is also the location of the LSTC License Manager installation, where the license file “server_data” must be located. Browse to this location, and rename the existing license file “server_data” to “server_data.old”. Copy the new “server_data” license file to the installation directory.
*** WARNING *** If you have modified the previous “server_data.old” file to include lines which start with HOST:, HOST1:, HOST2:, HOST3:, PORT:, PORT1:, PORT2:, or PORT3:, then you must manually copy these lines to the new “server_data” license file. Otherwise, the server will start on a wrong port, and LS-DYNA will be unable to acquire a license.
If errors occur at this point, then contact LSTC license support. If there are no errors, then a browse window will appear showing the full contents of the installation folder:
You may now close the installation program, but leave open the browser window.
If you did not choose to upgrade the LSTC License Manager software, then you must stop and restart the LSTC License Manager service in order to pick up the new “server_data” license file. If the service was not running when you performed the upgrade, then you must start the service. These options are available in the current tab. You should then verify that the service status is RUNNING:
