|Title: Setting Up License Server and Requesting A Network License|
For a FIRST TIME INSTALLATION of the license manager, please skip past the following instructions to the Installation Procedure below.
EXISTING CARLSON NETWORK USERS: Unless you are adding more licenses, or moving the license manager to a new server, it is unnecessary to update your license files. Carlson license files from the years 2007 forward are compatible with the latest networked Carlson software. Our current version of the Sentinel License Manager is 9.5.221. If your server is already running this version of the license manager, no further action is required on the server side.
Please continue the update of your license manager by following the installation procedure below.

NOTE: If you intend to use commuter licenses, please refer to Knowledgebase Article 507 for additional steps to be performed on the workstation by administrator.
