Start Bentley's License Management Tool program.
There are a number of methods to starting this application
select the Windows Start button, typically found in the lower left corner of the screen, in the search area type "License Management Tool"
Example, AutoPIPE menu group: select Windows Start button, typically found in the lower left corner of the screen, Select "All Programs", navigate to Bentley Engineering> AutoPIPE V8i Select Series> License Management Tool.
Example, Depending on version of AutoPIPE opened:
AutoPIPE V8i 09.05.xx.xx and lower: Select Tools> Settings> License Management Tool...
AutoPIPE V8i 09.06.01.xx: Select File> License Management Tool...
Within LMT, select Tools> Options> a dialog will appear, enter the "Server Name" and "Site Activation" Key Exactly as provided, to test everything is entered correctly and connected, press the "Test connection" button:
Note: for hosted licenses, Server name = selectserver.bentley.com
The following should have appeared:
SELECTserver and Activation Key verified.
If true, Great !!! got to Step #3. else continue reading below:
If the following appears:
Server does not support this Activation Key.
Press OK button,
There are only 2 reasons for this failure:
A. Computer not connected to the internet, (FIX: confirm internet connection)
B. One or both of the Server name / Site Activation Key were entered incorrectly, (FIX: confirm information entered).
IMPORTANT: Only when the "TEST Connection" button can be pressed and the Verified screen appears can any of Bentley applications become licensed. Contact Bentley On-Site Admin or Bentley Licensing / SELECTServer Group for assistance.
Press Ok button to close the Options pop-up window and select the License Checkout tab, shown below. The upper window will have a list of Bentley applications with the current number of available licenses on your SELECTserver. This list can also be controlled by any Bentley SELECTserver User / Application Checkout restrictions imposed by your companies Bentley On-site Admin.
Note: only applications listed with available license >0 in LMT can be activated. Example: if AutoPIPE Nuclear was not listed in LMT or the number of available licenses for that application was 0, then DO NOT try to stat AutoPIPE and activate the Nuclear edition, AutoPIPE will revert to DEMO mode.
Close, LMT and start using the software.
