Installing & Activating
Floating Licenses
Important Information -- read before you begin installing
• The ExtendSim 10 Floating license is used for the deployment of ExtendSim Pro, DE, CP, or Analysis RunTime (ART) products to multiple users through native installation of ExtendSim on multiple devices.
• This is a concurrent-user Client/Server con guration that:
• Is managed by a License Manager (RLM.exe) that is installed on a Server, runs as a Service, and regulates
the number of concurrent users by monitoring Client license requests transmitted through TCP/IP ports.
• Allows the ExtendSim application and  les to be installed on any number of Client devices anywhere as long
as they can communicate with the License Manager over a local or wide-area network.
• And, unless disabled at customer request prior to activation, permits Client devices to use a checked out
(roaming) license of ExtendSim for up to 30 days while disconnected from the network. • The Floating license requires two stages of activation.
1. The License Manager is activated using a numeric Activation Key that is speci c for the ExtendSim 10 product and the number of licensed concurrent users. License Manager activation can be accomplished automatically* over the internet or, if automatic activation is not supported, processed manually in-house.
2. The ExtendSim  les on Client devices get activated using a copy of the license  le (extendsim.lic) that is generated when the License Manager is activated.
Note: If Reprise License Manager (RLM) is already running on the Server you wish to install the ExtendSim License Manager on, see RLM Already Installed in the separate document Frequently Asked Questions • Floating Licenses.
• Can be a physical or virtual machine.
• Operating system: a 64-bit version of Windows 10, 8.1, Server 2016, or Server 2012.
• 1Ghz processor, 2GB RAM, 500MB disk space.
• Two ports (5053 and the ISV Server port) must be open on Client devices for outbound access so ExtendSim can
request licenses from the License Manager on the Server.
• Can be a physical or virtual machine.
• Operating system: a 64-bit version of Windows. Recommended: 10, 8.1, Server 2016, or Server 2012.
• Disk space: 100 MB.
• A browser to communicate with the License Manager locally (over an intranet, not the internet) for activation. • Three unblocked ports:
• 5054 (a web server port) for communicating with the License Manager locally using a browser.
• Two ports (5053 and the ISV Server port) must be open for inbound access on the Server to allow internal
communications between Server  les and so the License Manager can receive ExtendSim license requests. A high numeric port is randomly assigned as the ISV port during the activation process; it can change if the Server restarts.
Note: For automated activation, network and system access is required. If the Server has no internet access or blocks the License Manager from receiving encoded data from the internet, activation must be accomplished manually (in-house).
Subscription to the annual Maintenance and Support Plan (MSP) -- not applicable for Analysis RunTime Floating Licenses • The cost of the MSP is included for the  rst year after purchase.
• In subsequent years, MSP renewal is 20% of the list price for your license.
• You cannot install more than one ExtendSim 10 License Manager on a Server, but you use that Server’s License Manager to control multiple ExtendSim products.
• Unless purchased as a Global Floating license, the Floating License is restricted for use within one speci ed continent: Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, Oceania, or South America.
