Licensing issue

Recommended Posts

I am encountering  a licensing issue. I am getting 2 errors, errror no 9 and no 6. I have set the licensing file path which is currently located in the installation folder. How do I proceed from here?

Hi,

 

The software requires a license file to function, You should find the license file attached to the email with the software download links,

 

After downloading the license file, rename it to altair_lic.dat and place the same in the <installation directory>/security folder

If you have already done the above and still face the error, Use windows folder options / view > display file name extensions, to make sure the file is named altair_lic.dat and not altair_lic.dat.dat,

 

You need to confirm if the Ethernet address in the license file is the correct one and matches the one in your machine.

 

When you open the license file in a text editor you will see an Ethernet address there in a line that says "ETHERNET =

        

The Ethernet ID is the ID of your machine which is exactly 12 hexadecimal numbers. For example D4WRF478F398

 

Run ipconfig/all in command window and check for physical address under Ethernet adapter local area connection:

The listed physical address under Ethernet adapter local area connection should be used to generate the license file, if there is no listing of Ethernet adapter local area connection, the address under Wireless Adapter LAN Wifi must be used.

 

That means if the address provided as above does not match the one in the license file, please request for the license file again with the correct Ethernet ID here https://studentedition.altair.com/
