General Licensing: Using the www.licenseparser.com to help create an options file

The license parser is a website that will parse out your network license file into plain english!

The Product Support Team has been using the license parser website for about a year and as far as I am concerned, it's a fully functional beta website.

So what else is it good for?  You can use it to help you create your options file!

The basics for setting up an options file for licensing can be found here:

Another useful Technical Solution (TS)  is here:

Basically, when creating an options file, you do not require the Package part of the license file. It only requires the Components part of the license file.

Here is a sample adskflex.opt file that means that Revit Structure Suite 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009 can only be borrowed for 144 hours.

MAX_BORROW_HOURS 85792REVSU_2012_0F 144
MAX_BORROW_HOURS 85594REVSU_2011_0F 144
MAX_BORROW_HOURS 74000REVSU_2010_0F 144
MAX_BORROW_HOURS 61000REVSU_2009_0F 144

You can then use Google to convert hours to days via search.

Epilogue

In some instances for the newer Suites, you actually can use the PACKAGE codes instead of the each 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010 INCREMENT codes.

It's a great site. I use it all the time for all our licence servers to verify lics sent to us. It gets lots of extra use when lic files do their annual upgrade to the next version.
