How do I install licenses/register key files on the Floating License Server (FLS)?


Search for the License Administrator program on your computer and open it.

STEP 2: Connect to the FLS.  This will differ based on the FLS being installed on the same machine as the license administrator program or not.  Choose your scenario below.

->If the License Administrator is running on the same PC as the license server itself, select the Floating License Server in the list of the servers.

->If the License Administrator is installed on the different PC than the license server, proceed to the Server -> Connect menu item.

In the Connect to Server dialog select <custom> in the servers list

Specify the host name or IP address of the license server.

The license server’s host name can be found at the computer properties:In order to connect to the license server with the License Administrator the IP port number used by the Materialise software products released before October 2018 must be specified (7000 by default).
