    Note: You may copy a version, preferably a recent one, of the FlexNet Publisher lmutil utility into the $VOVDIR/bin directory (such as, c:/altair/lm/win64/bin), named as lmstat. It’s recommended to copy all “lm” utilities (eg. lmreread, lmremove, …) over to this area. You could just enter lmstat if the utility program has been copied over to $VOVDIR/bin directory.
  6. Click Add New Monitor.
  7. Go to Home tab.
    The current checkouts should be populating shortly, within 30 seconds. For Windows users, we recommend setting up Monitor as a service. See Set Up Monitor as a Service – Windows Only for more information.
