Frequently Asked Questions • ExtendSim Floating Licenses RLM Already Installed
Reprise License Manger (RLM)
Already Installed on Server
When RLM is already running on the Server where you want to install the License Manager for ExtendSim
DO NOT use the installer named ExtendSimServerLicenseManager unless instructed below.
The Floating license of ExtendSim uses the Reprise License Manager (RLM.exe). If RLM is already running on the Server where you want to install the License Manager for an ExtendSim license, there are two options:
Case 1 • If the currently running version of RLM is release 12 or greater, use Case 1, below, to add ExtendSim  les to the existing installation.
Case 2 • If the currently running version of RLM is earlier than release 12, use Case 2, below, to stop and remove the existing Service and instead use the RLM.exe that ships with ExtendSim.
Case 1 • If the currently running version of RLM is release 12 or greater
Step 1 • Install the ISV Settings File on the Server
1. DO NOT INSTALL THE EXTENDSIM LICENSE MANAGER ON THE SERVER.
2. Obtain an ISV settings  le (extendsim.set) from Imagine That Inc.
3. Place the extendsim.set  le in the same directory where the other RLM-using product has installed RLM.exe
and their license and settings  les. Step 2 • Activate the License
1. Follow the instructions for Step 2 • Activate the License Manager in the document Installing & Activating ExtendSim Floating Licenses.
2. Activation will either be automatic or manual.
3. Make a copy of the extendsim.lic  le for use in activating ExtendSim on each Client device.
• Since RLM was already running, the extendsim.lic license  le will be located in the same folder where you placed the extendsim.set  le.
• If you subsequently edit the license  le, such as changing the ISV port, distribute the modi ed  le to the Clients. Step 3 • Install and Activate ExtendSim on Client devices
1. Follow the instructions for Step 3 • Clients: Installing ExtendSim, in the document Installing & Activating ExtendSim Floating Licenses.
2. Follow the instructions for Step 4 • Activating ExtendSim on Clients, in that same document .
NOTE: With this option, the License Manager (RLM) will run as a Service under the existing Service’s name. The Service
will not be named ExtendSimLicServer.

Step 1 • Stop and remove the currently running RLM Service
