Licencing error code 9

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I asked for a new licence for educational version of Altair HyperWorks and I obtained it.

I substitute it in the security directory of Altair but when I run HW the attached window appear.

I also followed the operations indicated in the licensing mail.

 

"Copy the file to a location that does not change (like a user directory) and set the environment variable ALTAIR_LICENSE_PATH to the location of the license file.

To set an environment variable:
In Windows 10, Go to Settings -> System -> About -> System Info -> Advanced System Settings.
Click the Environment Variables button, and add a new User or System level environment variable with the New button. Add the variable name as ALTAIR_LICENSE_PATH, click Browse File…, browse to the location that the license is stored and select it."

 

The same attached window appear. What can I do?

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/
