Please follow these instructions if you have installed the SilverCreek Workgroups Server (a shared server or floating license server). The SilverCreek Workgroups Server may be either a Linux or Windows Server. Your clients may be either Linux or Windows clients. You can have an unlimited number of clients. Each client will "checkout" one of your server licenses. The number of concurrent clients (users of SilverCreek) is controlled by the server license (for example, five client, ten client, etc.)
The following instructions are for installing a Linux client application and license file.
Download the SilverCreek Installer
Install the SilverCreek application
Note the SilverCreek application can be installed on any computer, even the computer that runs the FortLM license server!
Install the fortlm_license.lic file to SilverCreek Client Application
When you start SilverCreek for the first time, you will see a message box with the hostID of the computer. Please ignore this message.
In this case, you will install the license file on the client computer, used by your license server.
There are two ways to do this:
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 the SilverCreek client home directory.
This is usually "Program Files->InterWorking Labs, Inc->SilverCreek Mx". Note you must retain the file name as fortlm_license.lic.
Start the SilverCreek Application
Go into the top directory of the your SilverCreek installation, and run
% bin/browse-agent (to run Tools Only, no Test Suites)
