AutoCAD 2010 network license – not much news

These are the executable that comes with AutoCAD 2010 and probably other 2010 products.

They are included in an msi installer file so if you have anything to extract them with (or install on your PC and grab the files) you can just copy install them manually.

  • adskflex.exe version 11.5.0.0
  • lmgrd.exe version 11.5.0.5
  • lmtools.exe version 11.5.0.0
  • lmutil.exe version 11.5.0.0

Here are the installed files in Autodesk Network License Manager

The Licensing system is based on FLEXnet Publisher Licensing Toolkit 11.5

Version 11.5 comes with:

  • Support new attribute for the NOLOG Option keyword
  • IPv6 support
  • New error codes
  • New feature definition line keywords–ONE_TS_OK and SUPERSEDE_SIGN

Here follows some tips from the readme.

To Activate A Network License Through Autodesk.com

If your product does not include the Network License Activation Utility, you can activate your license by going to http://www.autodesk.com/register and following the on-screen instructions.

Running a Network License Manager on Microsoft Windows Vista

When starting the network version of AutoCAD 2010 on a Microsoft Windows Vista workstation, you may encounter licensing error -15 if the license manager is running on Windows Vista (FLEXlm server version 11.4.100). Do the following:

Install the latest service pack and updates for Microsoft Windows Vista.
If you continue to encounter errors, do the following:

On the Start menu (Windows Vista), click Control Panel Network and Sharing Center Manage Network Connections. Right-click Local Area Connection. Click Properties. Clear the check mark from Internet Protocol 6 (TCP/IPv6). Click OK.
FlexLM License is Created in Two Locations

The FLEXlm License Finder (FlexNet License Finder) dialog box may not display when AutoCAD 2010 is launched for non-administrative users who are using Windows Vista 64-bit. The license server path information is stored in the HLKM\STOFTWARE\Wow6432Node path, which is not accessible to non-administrative users.

To fix this problem, replicate the license server path information stored in the above path to go to the HKLM\software\FLEXlm License Manager path.

JTB FlexReport does fully support the Autodesk 2010 products for license reporting.
