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.
The following options are available. They are described in detail in the sections that follow.
- Request an evaluation license. Request a fully functional, time-limited license (see below).
- Download a license. Use the license order ID received when you purchase the software to download and install a license file.
- Import a license from a file. Import an existing license file, for example a file downloaded from the web-based licensing system.
- Upgrade license. If you have used a previous version of the CLC Genomics Workbench, and you are entitled to upgrade to a new major version, select this option to upgrade your license file.
- Configure license server connection. If your organization has a CLC License Server, select this option to configure the connection to it.
To use the Download option in the License Manager, your machine must be able to access the external network. If this is not the case, please see Download a license on a non-networked machine.
If for some reason you don't have a license order ID or access to a license, you can click the Limited Mode button (see Limited mode).
