How to Install the Network License Manager

The Network License Manager is used to configure and manage the license servers.

To install your Network License Manager

  1. In the AutoCAD 2008 Installation wizard, click Install Tools and Utilities.
  2. On the Welcome to the AutoCAD 2008 Installation Wizard page, click Next.
  3. Review the Autodesk software license agreement for your country or region. You must accept this agreement to procede with the installation. Choose your country or region, click I Accept, and then click Next.
    NoteIf you do not agree to the terms of the license and wish to terminate the installation, click Cancel.
  4. On the Select the Items to Install page, make sure Network License Manager is selected and click Next.
  5. On the Review - Configure - Install page, click Configure.
  6. Click the Network License Manager tab.
  7. On the Select the Installation Location page, either accept the default installation path (C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Network License Manager\) or click Browse to specify a different path. If you enter a path that does not exist, a new folder is created using the name and location you provide. Click Next.
    WarningDo not install the Network License Manager on a remote drive. When you install the Network License Manager files, you must provide a path to a local drive. You must specify the drive letter; the universal naming convention (UNC) is not supported.
  8. On the Configuration Complete page, click Configuration Complete to return to the Review - Configure - Install page. Click Install.

    This installs the Network License Manager and any other tools and utilities you selected.

  9. When the Installation Complete page displays, click Finish.
