2. Setting up the License Manager

This article provides instructions for setting up the PSCAD License Manager. This may be set up as either of the following options:

  • Installed on a server, for sharing licensing with client machines over the network, or
  • Installed directly on the PSCAD machine, but only if:
    (1) the licensing is also installed on the PSCAD, AND
    (2) the license contains more than one PSCAD seat.

When setting up the license manager, the user will be prompted whether to also install a license file. If you have access to the license file at this time, you can select the option to install it. If you do not have the license file, you can select the option to not install it, but it will need to be installed at a later time to authorize licensing for PSCAD.
