Install the Software

  1. Download the proper package(s).
  2. Execute the installer package.
    1. To execute in non-GUI mode, open a command shell and execute the installer with the argument -i console (altair_licensing_14.5.win64_x64.exe –i console).
  3. If there is a current installation of the license server, the licensing the installer will try to detect it and ask if you would like to use the license file and config file from that installation. Answer the questions and designate the location where you want to install the licensing package. If you provide a nonexistent directory, the installer will try to create it.
  4. The installer asks whether you already have a license file. If you do, enter its location in the Install Wizard.
    If you do not have one, the installer creates a blank altair_lic.dat file in the /installation_directory/ and you can replace it later. The Hostid of the machine is displayed at the end of the installation if you should need it.
  5. The installer asks if you want to have the service for automatic startup installed, answer yes or no.
  6. The installer attempts to configure the URT properly. If it cannot contact the Altair Server, it will prompt you for your proxy information. Follow the prompts and enter the appropriate information. Leave any unneeded fields blank (e.g. username and password).
    If you do not have the data to configure the proxy, you can skip this step and manually modify the /installation_directory/alus.conf file later.
    Note: The proxy password is stored in the configuration file in plain text. It is the administrator’s responsibility to limit access to this file.
You have now completed the software installation.
