Autodesk Network License Manager 2014

Well, it's that time again.  Time to update your Autodesk Network License Manager files to the latest and greatest (Autodesk) version.

 

Autodesk is providing version 11.11 for 2014 products.

 

You can get the Autodesk Network License Manager files here for both 32-bit and 64-bit versions:

 

http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/ps/dl/item?siteID=123112&id=18610121&linkID=12305695

 

You can always get the latest version of the NLM from the following link:

 

http://www.globes.com/support/fnp_utilities_download.htm

 

At the time of this post, the latest version is 11.11.1, which is newer than the version supplied by Autodesk.  I am attaching the necessary 32-bit adskflex vendor daemon file in this message (v11.11) for your convenience.  You can use this file if you are using the Flexera License Administrator instead of LMTOOLS.  You can find the FLEXnet License Admin also in the link above.  I will post the 64-bit adskflex.exe vendor daemon file in a follow-up post below.

 

 

You can update your license file to 2014 versions once your Subscription has been fulfilled. 

 

You can use the online method to activate your license here:

http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/pc/item?id=18424632&siteID=123112

Or you can can call Autodesk Product Registration and Authorization:

http://en.autodesk.ca/adsk/servlet/index?siteID=9719649&id=9830778

1-800-551-1490 > Option 1 (English) > Option 2 > (Network)

Asia / Pacific: 65.6735.5688
Europe / Middle East / Asia: 41.32.723.9595

You will need to provide your serial number and ethernet ID of the new license server.

For a Quick-Start Guide on configuring the Autodesk License Manager, please see my post for further information:

Good Luck!

 

As in previous iterations of the NLM upgrades, this version also seems to suffer from the same -15 errors, IPv6 issues, and the subsequent exiting of the adskflex.exe vendor daemon on Windows 8 and Server 20xx R2 installations. 

 

I was able to get it working with no problems on Windows 7, Server 2003, and Windows XP.  However, if you are installing on newer machine configurations, you will want to see my posts about fixing -15 errors here:

 

http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/Installation-Licensing/Network-License-Error-1-5-15-and-IPv6/m-p/2982864

 

Subsequently, you may find success in running the 11.7 version of the adskflex.exe vendor daemon, as I have done on my Windows 8 machine.  If you would like to use this file with the latest NLM, you can.  I have attached the older 11.7 version zipped here.

For those of you who need the 64-bit version of the adskflex.exe vendor daemon for your LMTOOLS update or FLEXnet License Administrator, you can find it attached to this post.

I agree, Darren.  I keep hearing rumors about cloud licensing though.  Hard telling...

Isn't this the same one that came with 2013 software? If so, then we should be able to use the existing LMTools already installed from last year. Correct? Just checking. Thanks.

Then your license manager is already upgraded.  However, the vendor daemon from Autodesk changes every year as well.
