Click "Install," and then click "Finish" once the server installation is complete.2. Dongle troubleshooting: Installing the Sentinel HASP LDK dongle driver
If you are having licensing issues after you have completed the previous steps, the first step is to reboot the computer. If the issue persists and you are using a dongle, there are two options to fix this.2.1 Installing from the License Server files
Open Windows File Explorer and go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Simcenter\RLM 13.0.0 License Server\Licensing\Drivers. Open the folder Sentinel LDK Run time setup. Right click on the executable file named HASPUserSetup, and run as administrator.2.2 Installing from the provider's website
The other option to install the RLM dongle driver is to download it from the website. Open a web browser and search for "Drivers and Runtime Gemalto." Click on the link to Drivers & Runtime Packages of the Gemalto Support Portal.
In the Gemalto (Thales) Support Portal, search for "HASP LDK Windows GUI Runtime" and select the current version of the Sentinel HASP/LDK Windows GUI Runtime Installer.
Click on the hyperlink to download the dongle driver.
Accept the license agreement, and the file will begin to download. Once the file downloads, browse to it in Windows File Explorer. Right click on the zip folder that says Sentinel LDK run time setup and extract it. Open the extracted folder and right click on the executable file named HASPUserSetup to run as administrator.3. Setting up the license files
Once the RLM license server is installed, as well as the dongle driver if necessary, you can set up your license.
You must have an updated license file for the software version you are using. If you need an updated license file, contact the Siemens Support Center
with your sold-to and your request.
If you are using a dongle, server, or PC, make sure you have all the corresponding license files.
Once you have these license files, place them in the license folder.
The default location for this is C:\ProgramData\lms\licensing.
Copy the license file or license files to that location. Any time you have new or updated license files, you must put them in this location.
Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Simcenter\RLM 13.0.0 License Server\Licensing\Bin and run the reread_localhost.bat file. The pop-up window should give the message “Reread command successfully sent to RLM server,” followed by your host name.
You should be able to start Simcenter Testlab with no problems.
If you run into problems during this process, please contact Siemens Support Center office at the appropriate phone number listed on Siemens Support Center Website
and have your sold-to ready. For example, the phone number for North America is 1-800-955-0000.Other Simcenter Testlab Installation Resources:
