I am installing the FlexNet Publisher 2016 (11.14.0) onto the Sold Edge License server in order to be able to use ST10. Unfortunately the installer throws an error saying that the installation package is not supported by the processor! The processor is an i3-3220 @ 3.30 GHz. There is 4GB RAM installed. All the documentation that I have found says that an x86 or x64 type processor is supported. Maybe that no longer includes i3? I don't know. There's nothing in the Siemens documentation - I had to google it. I know it will install on my machine (it has XEON processors) but I do not want to do that.
Can anybody tell me the minimum system requirements for a Solid Edge ST10 license server these days?
Solved! Go to Solution.
this sounds strange, since I thought the FlexLM never be an application which needs a lot of computer power.
Which operating system are You using.
I had a similar situation a couple of days ago, where I wasn't able to instal the Flex Server, but than I have seen this computer is a 32bit Win10 machine, which I never ever expected to have at all.
But a dependence from the CPU?
This would be strange
I regret that you are having these issues.
We update the Flex information in the Solid Edge Readme file for each release. This is from the ST10 Readme file:
Solid Edge License Manager Operating System Information
FlexNet Publisher 2016 (11.14.0) supports the following:
Your OS is good. I can't imagine Flex having issues with a processor. I discussed this with the GTAC manager this morning. He has not heard of any issues related to processor. They will start investigating this. Please contact your customer support, so that we can work directly with you to get this resolved the quickest.
Solid Edge Release Manager
There is a PR#7941169 that mentions this message but it is because the OS is 32 bit.
"This installation package is not supported by this processor type. Contact your product vendor"
This is the solution.
License Manager is a 64bit setup starting with ST9 and hence can't be installed on 32bit OS.
I know stated you are running 64 bit OS so it doesn't make sense.
The requirement is for Windows 7 Ultimate... He is running Pro which has less features than Ultimate has, so that may be why it may not be working. Windows 7 Ultimate is essentially the same as Windows 7 Enterprise that large enterprise customers may be running.
