UG and I-DEAS on the same machine?

UG and I-DEAS on the same machine?

UG and I-DEAS on the same machine?

I'm using Unigraphics NX 2 and I-DEAS NX on the same machine. The problem is that everytime I want to use either of the two I have to stop the license server service (FlexLm), make changes to the paths regarding the license file and "lmgd.exe" and then restart the service. I read in the FlexLm manual that is is possible to load both license files with one lisence daemon but so far haven't succeded. Anyone?

P4 @ 3.2 GHz with 2048Mb RAM, WinXP SP1. UG and I-DEAS are installed in a separate partition (not c:\)


RE: UG and I-DEAS on the same machine?

We don´t have anymore Ideas but I think you can put both license files in Lmtools by separating them with a semi-colon ";"

RE: UG and I-DEAS on the same machine?

I got Ideas and UGNX running at the same time.
Open LMTOOLS.exe
Go to "configuration using services"
I think you would only have one.
Then go to configure services.
Put a new name on the "service name"
setup the location of the lmgrd.exe, license, log, then save the new service.
At the bottom check "use service"
then check "start service at power up"
Now you have two services running serving license for

Hope this helps.
