Installing License Codes on Standalone Computers

After receiving a license code, it must be installed where it can be found by the RMS license management system.

For a standalone application, usually the license code is installed in the same directory as the application. Your software vendor can provide you with a program to install the license code. Alternatively, the software vendor can also configure the licensed application to install the license code. If none of these is the case, then the lslic utility can be used to install the license code on a Windows or UNIX computer.

NOTE   If your software vendor has configured the application to install the license code by itself, then a license installation utility will guide you through the process of obtaining a license code and getting a locking code. You will be presented different options for obtaining the license code, such as Internet, calling your software vendor by phone, or using a fax or email service.
