SolidNetWork License Manager Options File for SOLIDWORKS

Jake Howard

Learn how an Options File can be applied to the SolidNetWork License Manager to control license usage on your server.

The SNL Manager is an easy to install and use interface that gives administrators the ability to make changes which affect their users’ access to SOLIDWORKS licenses.

The SNL Manager is licensed by FlexLM, which is a standard network licensing manager that allows license administrators to be as secure (or as open) with licenses as needed.

By default, the SolidNetWork License Manager does not use an options file, and gives equal preference to all users checking out a license. By creating and applying an options file, an administrator can:

  • Allow the use of features
  • Deny the use of features
  • Reserve licenses
  • Restrict the number of licenses available
  • Control the amount of information logged about license usage
  • Enable a report log file
  • Control the rereading of licenses

    So I opened _SNL_OptionsFile.pdf. Who writes your manuals. Hire a professional. You list things consistently in the opposite order of when it is done. Last this first, first thing last.
    1. How to create the option file.
    ...with correct syntax (typically with a blank line in between)... typically? the correct syntax requires a blank line typically? Or is this blank line for my readability only (I cannot imagine the computer is concerned with readability)?
    You list things consistently in the opposite order of when it is done. Last this first, first thing last.
    First you tell the name, then the location (you actually show the full file name, your nomenclature is off) In real live you go to the location, then specify the file name.
    2. How to load the option file.
    Step 4. Why is it there?
    Step 5 should part of section 1
