When you have installed CLC Genomics Workbench, and start it for the first time, you will meet the license assistant, shown in figure 1.1.
Please note that to install a license, you must be running the program in administrative mode 1.1.
The following options are available. They will be described in detail in the following sections.
- Request an evaluation license. The license is a fully functional, time-limited license (see below).
- Download a license. When you purchase a license, you will get a license ID from CLC bio. Using this option, you will get a license based on this ID.
- Import a license from a file. If CLC bio has provided a license file, or if you have downloaded a license from our web-based licensing system, you can import it using this option.
- Upgrade license. If you already have used a previous version of CLC Genomics Workbench, and you are entitled to upgrading to the new CLC Genomics Workbench 6.0, select this option to get a license upgrade.
- Configure license server connection. If your organization has a license server, select this option to connect to the server.
If for some reason you don't have access to getting a license, you can click the Limited Mode button (see Limited mode).
