DongleLocked Windows2

Installing Dongle-locked SilverCreek on Windows Systems

These instructions assume that you have already installed the client version of SilverCreek on your Windows system.

1

Start the SilverCreek applicaton

When you start SilverCreek for the first time, you will see a message box that tells the hostID of the Windows system. Please ignore it.

In this case, the dongle is simply a USB NIC card. You will receive a USB NIC card along with a matching fortlm_license file from InterWorking Labs.

2

Install the Dongle

Insert the USB dongle into a USB port on your windows system. If you also received a driver installation program for the NIC card, please set it up.

3

Check the USB card

Make sure the installed USB card is functioning properly. To do this, from a DOS window run:

ipconfig /all
to check if the USB NIC card has been properly assigned a MAC address.

NOTE: The USB NIC card dongle does NOT need to be actively connected to a network for SilverCreek to operate properly.

4

Install the FortLM license

Next, you will install the fortlm_license.lic file.

The simplest way is to use the "Import" button on the "License File Required" dialog when SilverCreek starts up.

Alternatively you can take a copy of the fortlm_license.lic file and place it in SilverCreek's home directory. 
This is usually "Program Files->InterWorking Labs, Inc->SilverCreek Mx".

NOTE: You must retain the file name as fortlm_license.lic.

5

Restart SilverCreek

Restart SilverCreek. You should be up and running. 
    If not please check out FortLM error code or contact support @iwl.com.

NOTE: Please be sure to keep the dongle in a safe place; if it is lost, you will have to purchase a new one!
You may exchange a damaged USB NIC card for a fee.
