Why doesn't the <CODE>LM_LICENSE_FILE</CODE> environment variable in my UNIX system affect which license is read by the MAX+PLUS<SUP>®</SUP> II software?
DescriptionWhen you run the MAX+PLUS II software, the software checks to see if a variable called
LM_LICENSE_FILEis present in the maxplus2.ini file. If the variable is defined, the software obtains license information using the value of the variable. However, if the variable is not defined, the MAX+PLUS II software creates the variable and uses the value of the
LM_LICENSE_FILEenvironment variable from your UNIX shell as the value for the variable in the maxplus2.ini file.
To modify the location where the MAX+PLUS II software searches for the license file, you should:
- Use the MAX+PLUS II graphical user interface (GUI) to assign the license file (Options menu -> Authorization Code).
- Manually modify the
LM_LICENSE_FILEvariable in the maxplus2.ini file to point to the license file.
