Info on Qckvu for PROLITH Evaluation License

Qckvu for PROLITH uses the Flexlm licensing system. For evaluations or for laptop computers it is no longer necessary to install the Flexlm license server. Instead, we can issue a license that is locked to the machine's ethernet card or to the disk volume serial number.

Determing Your Computer's ID

To get your computer's ID you should download the utilities provided by Globetrotter and the run the program called v8_lmtools.exe. A screen will pop open. Make sure you have selected the tab called System Settings.

Laptop User?

If you are a laptop user, you should first disconnect from the network and reboot your machine prior to running the v8_lmtools.exe utility. Some laptops are configured in a way that reports a different or additional ethernet address when connected into the network than when not connected. By disconnecting and rebooting, you will provide us an ethernet address that is valid both when connected and disconnected from the network.

lmtools System Settings displays your machine's ethernet address and disk ID.

Once you have run the v8_lmtools.exe you should save the Hostid info to a text file using the button provided for that purpose. Then attach it to your email:

save the Hostid Info to a file and email it to KLA-Tencor
