Installing your Softimage 2011 network license

To get your 2011 license, get your 2011 serial number and then go to

  1. Save your 2011 license file in C:\Program Files\Autodesk Network License Manager.
  2. Start LMTOOLS.
  3. On the Start/Stop/Reread tab, click Stop Server.

  5. Click Save Service.
  6. On the Start/Stop/Reread tab, click Start Server.
  7. Now double-check that the 2011 license is installed. On the Server Status tab, click Perform Status Enquiry.

    First, check that LMTOOLS is using the new license file. Look for this info:

    License file(s) on MTL-EXAMPLE: C:\Program Files\Autodesk Network License Manager\SFTIM_2011.lic:

    Under “Feature usage info”, you should see a list of features like 85563SFTIM_2011_0F, 84000SFTIM_2010_0F, and 78600SFTIM_7_5F.
    The features with B1, B2, B3, B4, and B5 are your batch licenses.

Tip – If LMTOOLS is still using your 2010 license:

– Go to the Start/Stop/Reread tab.
– Select the “Force Server Shutdown” check box.
– Click Stop Server.
