How to Obtain a License File

Before you install SAMreport-Lite, you must obtain a license file. SAMreport-Lite runs on any computer, but it can read only the report logs from the license server(s) where you obtain a license file. You will be asked for the location of this file during installation.

To obtain a license file

  1. On the server where you plan to manage licenses and report on them, click Start menu All Programs (or Programs) Autodesk Network License Manager LMTOOLS.
  2. In LMTOOLS, click the System Settings tab.
  3. Record the host ID, which is located in the Ethernet Address field.
    NoteIf your server has more than one Ethernet adapter, select one that corresponds to a physical network adapter.
  4. Exit lmtools.exe.
  5. Next, you need to request a license file from Macrovision Corporation. On the Internet, go to the following website:

  6. Follow the online instructions for requesting a license file.
  7. After completing the online request for the license file, you will receive an email that contains the license information. Copy and paste the license information from the email into a text editor. Save the file with an extension of .lic or .dat. Make sure you note where you saved the file and what you named it. You will be prompted for the location of the license file during the SAMreport-Lite installation.
