Install Altair License Management System on Windows

Consult the table listed in Chapter 3 to download the package that is appropriate for the machine that will be your license server. You can download the package from the Altair web site (, or from the CD media sent by Altair.

In order to install the software with automatic startup during reboot, you will need to have admin rights for the account from which you are logged in. If you do not have admin access or do not want to install the ALS as a service, you may add the following option to the command line when running the installer: -DNO_ROOT=t.

It is also important to allow traffic on the port used by the Licensing systems. By default, this is port 6200. You may have to enable traffic on this port for both the license server machine and the clients if you are running any type of firewall or security software.
