Description

When you run the MAX+PLUSII software, the software checks to see if a variable called LM_LICENSE_FILE is 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+PLUSII software creates the variable and uses the value of the LM_LICENSE_FILE environment variable from your UNIX shell as the value for the variable in the maxplus2.ini file.

To modify the location where the MAX+PLUSII software searches for the license file, you should:

  • Use the MAX+PLUSII graphical user interface (GUI) to assign the license file (Options menu -> Authorization Code).

    or

  • Manually modify the LM_LICENSE_FILE variable in the maxplus2.ini file to point to the license file.
