Workbench Licenses

When you have installed the CLC Genomics Workbench, and start it for the first time or after installing a new major release, you will meet the license assistant, shown in figure 1.1. The License Manager can also be accessed from the menu bar in the Workbench:

        Help | License Manager

This can be useful if you wish to use a different license or want to view information about the license(s) the Workbench is currently using. The License Manager is described in detail in Configure license server connection and can be seen in figure 1.23.

To install a license, you must be running the program in administrative mode 1.1.
