What is needed to install and use a demo license (asr file)

Issue

It is not clear which part of the license system handles the end user license and which part handles the demo license.

Having both TAC Vista and SmartStruxure installed on the same PC can cause conflicts in the license system.

Product Line

TAC Vista, SmartStruxure Solution

Environment

SmartStruxure

Demo License

Cause

If a SmartStruxure installation is only used for engineering and therefore will only have demo licenses activated, you don't need to install the license server. The service "FLEXnet Licensing Service" is installed by any SmartStruxure software package, and that is the service that will handle the activation of demo licenses.

Resolution

If you will only use demo licenses on a PC and/or also have TAC Vista installed on the same PC, only install the license administrator and not the license server.
