I don't understand the question. Can you explain a bit more what
you're trying to do?

Hi Paul,

Thanks for your response.

Could you please eloborate more on license server?
It would be great of you if you could explain the difference between license
file "6008.lic" and license server?

Thanks and Regards,
Suresh.

Most Arbortext products are available as fixed or floating licenses.



A fixed license is a license file such as 6008.lic that is installed on a
machine, and allows that specific machine to run the software which the
license is for. (60xx.lic is the naming scheme, where the xx is a code that
indicates which Arbortext software product the license file unlocks)



A floating license is the case where a number of licenses are installed on a
license server. Arbortext applications will then connect to the license
server to retrieve a license as is necessary. The idea obviously being that
you don't need to license each and every physical machine for Arbortext, you
only to purchase the maximum number of floating licenses you need to be
active at any given time.



The licensing server itself is a separate (small) software component that
ships with Arbortext. It is not a part of PE itself.



Clear as mud?? J

Yeah, what Gareth said.

My original response lists the install files for the license server.
Detailed information can be ffound in chapter 6 of the Installation and
Licensing Guide for Arbortext Editor, Styler, and Architect. A PDF shipped
with Editor, found in the docs directory in the install tree.

Also, everything we said will change with ... 6.0, right? There will be a
new (to Arbortext products) licensing model for 6.x and up. It has been in
use with other PTC apps for some time.
