Provide Products and Licensing Information to Clients

After you install the license manager on your server, you must provide users who want to install MathWorks® products on their computers with:

  • A License File— Give users a copy of the License File that was processed during installation of the license manager on your server. This License File must contain the correct SERVER line for the license server you are using. For information about this License File, see License File Processing on Server.

      Note:   Do not give users performing client installations a copy of the original License File you created from the licensing email. They can't use the licensing information in this form — it doesn't include the correct SERVER line. Also, do not forward to users the licensing email you received from MathWorks.

  • Access to product files — There are several ways to make product files available to users performing client installations. You can share the MathWorks product DVD with users. You can also download the product files and make them available on a server that is accessible to all clients. For these scenarios, users will need a File Installation Key to install products.

    If users performing client installations have MathWorks Accounts, you can give users the Activation Key for the license and let them log in to their accounts to install their MathWorks products.

  • Installation instructions — Give users a copy of the instructions in Install MathWorks Software on Client Systems in Network Configurations. Do not give them the license manager installation instructions because this might confuse them.
