Licensing modules

When you have installed the CLC Microbial Genomics Module and start a tool from that module for the first time, the License Assistant will open (figure 2.2).

The License Assistant can also be launched by opening the Workbench Plugin Manager, selecting the installed module from under the Manage Plugins tab, and clicking on the button labeled Import License.

To install a license, the CLC Workbench must be run in administrator mode. On Windows, you can do this by right-clicking the program shortcut and choosing "Run as Administrator". On Linux and Mac, it means you must launch the program such that it is run by an administrative user.
