Autodesk 2016 Network license products – New FLEXLM released.

“2016” version of FLEXLM released.

Autodesk announced a policy last year of releasing a version of FLEXLM on each new release of the software.
We recommend that if you intend to run the latest version of the software that you get the latest FLEXLM version otherwise your 2016 software may not pick up it’s license. If you are in the process of installing 2015 product then you will most likely need to upgrade FLEXLM as well.

The procedure for obtaining the latest FLEXLM is shown below.
Please note that there are 2 “flavours” of FLEXLM download that are aimed towards different network protocols (IVP4 and IVP6) -but the one labelled IVP6 supports IVP4/IVP6 mixed environments.
