Reinstall SolidEdge ST9 on a formatted PC

Hi guys,

 

Good day to you. Recently I just formated the Solid Edge computer with Windows 7 SP1 fresh installation. Now I want to reinstall back the Solid Edge ST9. How do I activate the license on that computer? 

 

I check my ex-colleague and she received one email with license key text file (SELicense.txt) but the setting inside the license key using "this_host"  so should I change it to the computer name (hostname)?

 

FYI I will install Solid Edge ST9 into this new formatted computer.

 

Thanking you in advance. 

 

Regards,

AELUser

Hi,


the info "this_host" within the license file seems for me to come from a floating license, which means that here should be a license server running from which You can get Your "ready to start" Solid Edge

 

Ask Your college what the name of the SE license server in the network is and then either change the place holder "this_host" to the license server name or start the lciense wizzart from the start menü and there You choose license server and give there the name of it.

 

A floating license normally doesn't conflict with Your PC reinstallation

Wolfgang

Dear Sir,

 

Sorry for the reply. Now I done most of the setup already which I refering from Internet. But when I going to start the Flexnet license Manager I encounter problem to start the service from LMTOOLS utility.

 

I alway get the error nessage :  VD is starting. Please check vendor daemon's status in debug log.

 

I seems got difficulty to start my services on FLEXlm license manager

 

My debug log message is following :

Hi,



is Your PC the designated license server?

If not then You need not to install the flexlm software.

 

This only is necessary at the license server

 

And there YOu need to install the dongle (sentinel) driver and You have to iinsert the license server dongle into the PC

Execpt the server identification is done via CID or ethernet adapter number

But if this is the case then You have to get a new license file

Hi,

 

 

 

have You had this PC running as license server before reinstalltion too?

And if Yes, is there an USB dongle pluged in?

 

Who has installed this computer for the first installtion?

 

Without knowing what Your license really is, wether it is the license server or not it becomes difficult to give You the correct answers.

What type of licsen do You have?

Wolfgang

Hi,



OK, this is a floating license for a flexlm server usig a usb dongle for identification.

 

This means, that You have to have the server dongle available and at least the dongle driver installed - before pluging in the dongle.

Then You have to install the flexlm software but as I interpret You license file, there was a borrowing done before 15th of July

 

You should have an original license file which You can use for installation and usage.

 

And then You can use that server for any worksation to get appropriate licenses when starting Solid Edge
