Installation & Upgrade

  • During Smart Licensing installation, SmartPlant License Manager (SPLM) is removed if it is present. If the computer has SmartPlant License Manager (License Server) on it before installing Smart Licensing, a message about existing license keys appears. For more information, see Message about existing license keys becoming invalid.

  • If your licensed application is implemented using IIS (Web Server) sites, you must restart the computer (web server) after installing Smart Licensing Client.

  • When you install or uninstall the licensing client software, MSI installation log files are created in the %TEMP% folder.

  • You can also install the software in silent mode, which requires no user interaction as the software installs. For more information, see Installing the software in silent mode.

  • Intergraph Smart Licensing supports virtual machines on Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS).

You must log in as Administrator to install this software.

  1. From the product installation DVD, if the installation does not start automatically, double-click Smart Licensing Client Setup.exe.

  2. In the Welcome window, click Start Setup.

  3. In the Details and Features window, enter your user name and company.

  4. In the Device Configuration Connection Info box, browse to select a configuration connection info (.cci) file.

    • If the load of the .cci file shows a validation error connecting to the configuration server, you have the option to continue the install without loading the cci file. You can specify a different .cci file after installation. For more information, see Configure the licensing clients and Troubleshoot connectivity.

    • You can also select a group configuration connection info (.cci) file. For more information, see Group configurations.

      A group configuration can be defined for an Active Directory group of users.

      Using group configurations can save time when setting up and maintaining a licensing system with many different users. If a group configuration connection info (.cci) file is loaded on a client computer and users are added or removed from the Active Directory group, these changes take effect immediately on the client computer. For example, a user added to the Active Directory group can use licenses from that group configuration immediately.

      Group configurations require the following:

      • Intergraph Smart Licensing Client installed on a computer on the domain

      • Intergraph Smart Licensing Client service modified to run as a domain user to allow access to Active Directory

      • For an application implemented using IIS (Web Server) sites that support group configurations, such as HxGN SDx, a valid domain must be entered in the ISLUserDomain setting in Server Manager. For more information, see Group CCI configurations for applications implemented via IIS (Web Server) sites.

      Configure the Intergraph Smart Licensing Client service to run as a domain user

      Before changing the log on account in this procedure:

      • Check in all licenses that were checked out for offline use on the computer. Otherwise, these licenses will be unusable until their expiration.

      • Ensure you record the information for all the previous configuration connection info (.cci) files configured on the computer. The previous cci files will be removed once this change is complete, because the service assigned to a new user does not have the same permission as the local service.

      1. Open the Control Panel, and double-click Administrative Tools.

      2. In the Administrative Tools window, double-click Services.

      3. Click Intergraph Smart Licensing Client, and select Properties from the shortcut menu.

      4. In the Service status section, click Stop.

      5. On the Log On tab, select This account, and type the domain user name.

      6. In the Password and Confirm password boxes, type the password for the domain user account, and click Apply.

      7. In the Service status section, click Start, and OK.

  5. In the Install Path box, enter the path to where Smart Licensing Client will be installed, and click Next.

    SHARED Tip The default installation path for Smart Licensing Client is C:\Program Files\Intergraph Smart Licensing. The installation path must be accessible by NT AUTHORITY\Local Service.

  6. In Advanced Settings > Client Service Port Selection section, select one of the following options to configure the Client Service port:

    • Use Default Port - Sets the port automatically to 8088. This value cannot be changed.

    • Use Custom Port - Allows you to enter a custom value for the port. The number must be between 1 and 65535. Ports 1-1024 need elevated permissions. For more information, see Which ports require special permissions?

      The selected Client Service port is used for local communication between Smart Licensing Client and the Hexagon product.

  7. If you are installing Smart Licensing Client in an environment that uses a proxy, specify your proxy settings in the Advanced Settings > Proxy Settings section:

    • Proxy Refresh Interval – Allows you to set how often Smart Licensing Client looks for changes to the proxy settings. Values range between zero (0) to 60 minutes. Setting the refresh interval to zero (0) minutes makes the Smart Licensing Client check for updated proxy settings before each web request.

    • No Proxy – Select this option for Smart Licensing Client if you do not use a proxy in your environment.

    • Autodiscovery – Allows you to set Smart Licensing Client to automatically discover the proxy. This option is often used when the proxy has been set up with WPAD.

    • Use a setup (PAC) script – Allows you to set Smart Licensing Client to use a Proxy Auto-Configuration (PAC) script file to determine the proxy information. You must specify the URL of the PAC script.

    • Custom Proxy – Allows you to manually configure the address and port of your proxy for Smart Licensing Client.

      Smart Licensing Client creates a Proxy.config file to store your proxy settings in the following location: C:\ProgramData\Smart Application Data Service\Proxy.config.

  8. You can manage the toast notifications using the Enable Toast Notifications setting under Advanced Settings > User Settings. This option is selected by default.

    This setting applies to the current logged-on user.

  9. You can manage the automatic start of the Intergraph Smart Licensing Client after your machine is rebooted using the Auto Start on Windows Reboot setting under Advanced Settings > Device Settings.

  10. In the License Agreement window, select your country or region from the Country or Region list.

  11. Carefully read the license agreement. When you are finished, select I agree to the license agreement and conditions, and click Install.

  12. Click Finish when the installation is complete.

    SHARED Tip Select Launch Intergraph Smart Licensing Client if you want to immediately start the software.
