|Home > Installing a Node-locked License Using the Arm License Manager > Installing a node-locked license manually (Windows only)|
Instead of using the Arm® License Manager, you can install your node-locked license manually.
To manually install a node-locked license on a Windows computer:
.licfile (for example, license.lic).
For example, to create the variable from the Windows Control Panel:
Select Start > Control Panel to open the Control Panel.
Double click on the System icon in the Control Panel. An easy way to find this icon is to change the Control Panel view to Classic View.
Click the Advanced tab in Windows 2000 or XP, or the Advanced system settings task in Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 10, then click the Environment Variables button.
Create a new system environment variable,
ARMLMD_LICENSE_FILE, and set its value to point to the
location of your license.
