Installing the License Database File

This article provides instructions for installing the license database file.

The license database file and the USB lock, together, are required to authorize licensing for a lock-based license. The instructions in the attached manual provide instructions for installing the license database file on the machine that will be hosting the license.

For this procedure, you will require the license.txt file that is provided by the Manitoba HVDC Research Centre.

If you do not have your license.txt file, please contact our sales desk at, and provide you PSCAD license number. If you do not know your license number, you may plug in your USB lock and run our Get Info utility to determine this, per instructions Appendix B of the manual that is posted here.
