Note: GOLD 5.4 and later uses CSD software suite based licensing, and does not require a flexnet license server to be run. The following information therefore only applies to GOLD 5.3 and earlier.
GOLD 5.3 and earlier uses Flexnet licensing. In order to licence it:
- If you are already running a GOLD licence server and wish to update an existing licence file, please remember to stop the FlexNet licence server first.
- After updating/installing a counted permanent GOLD licence, please remember to start/restart the FlexNet licence server after saving the changes.
You will be sent a file called ccdc_licence.zip which you should copy to the top level of your GOLD Suite installation and then unpack the ccdc_licence.dat file it contains. On Windows this can be achieved by double clicking on the .zip file and extracting the .dat file.
On linux use the command:
or if unzip is unavailable on your system use the commands:
gunzip -S .zip ccdc_licence.zip
mv ccdc_licence ccdc_licence.dat
