Solution

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.

 

Evaluation Licences

The most common cause of errors when starting GOLD after installing a new evaluation licence is that the format of the licence file is incorrect. Please ensure that your licence matches the format below:

FEATURE gold ccdc 5.2 28-feb-2019 uncounted 123456780AB HOSTID=DEMO \
TS_OK SIGN="1234 1234 1234 1234 1234 1234 1234 1234 1234 1234 \

Floating Permanent Licences

Please ensure that you have started the GOLD FlexNet licence server and that it is still running when using GOLD. Details on how to start and stop the licence server can be found in the installation notes for Gold Suite.

The licence file should also match the formats shown below:
