License Manager Installation & Activation Instructions
Part 1 • Install License Manager on the Server
Note 1: Don't install new License Manager  les over a previous installation without  rst stopping the service and uninstalling; see License Manager on Server in the separate document Frequently Asked Questions • Floating Licenses.
Note 2: 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.
1. If possible, install the License Manager software on the Server before installing ExtendSim on Client devices.
2. Use the ExtendSimServerLicenseManager installer (obtained from an email, a download, or an ExtendSim 10 USB
drive) and follow its instructions to install the  les on the Server.
3. If you encounter security or other issues when installing, see Security Issues in the separate document Frequently
Asked Questions • Floating Licenses.
4. By default the installer creates a folder named ExtendSimFloatingLicenseServer that is placed at the root of the
Server’s C drive (C:\ExtendSimFloatingLicenseServer). The folder contains the RLM Svc folder and three  les:
extendsim.set, log le, and RLM.exe.
5. After installation, the License Manager (RLM.exe) will silently run in the background as a Service named
ExtendSimLicServer.
6. Before proceeding, we suggest you verify that ExtendSimLicServer is running as a Service. See License Manager
on Server in the separate document Frequently Asked Questions • Floating Licenses. Part 2 • Activate License Manager
ExtendSimLicServer is a web interface License Manager that runs as a Service.
1. Open a browser
• If you open the browser on the Server you’ve installed the License Manager on, enter “localhost:5054” in the
browser’s address line and press Enter. (If your browser inserts https:// in the address line, remove that text.) • If you open the browser on another device:
• It must be on the same network as the device where you installed the License Manager.
• Enter servername:5054 in the browser’s address line and press Enter. (Be sure servername is the name of
the Server that has the License Manager installed and the text in the address line does not include https://.) • This takes you to the Reprise License Server Administration (RLSA) window.
2. From the commands on the left side of the RLSA window: • Select the Activate License command
