Applies to: ARM Developer Suite (ADS), DS-5, RealView Compilation Tools (RVCT) for BREW, RealView Developer Kit (RVDK) for OKI, RealView Developer Kit (RVDK) for ST, RealView Developer Kit for XScale (RVXDK), RealView Development Suite (RVDS), Tool Licensing (License Management)
First, obtain your license from the ARM web licensing portal (login/registration required). Save the license file as
license.dat and place it into
C:\Program Files\ARM (or wherever you have chosen to install the tools).
Next, follow the appropriate instructions below for the ARM development tools license that you are installing:
DS-5 (Windows and Unix/Linux)
ARM recommends that you use the ARM License Manager installed with your tools to configure your licenses. This will configure the
ARMLMD_LICENSE_FILE environment variable. For details on how to use the ARM License Manager, refer to chapter 3.1 of the ARM DS-5 License Management Guide.
Alternatively, licenses can be installed manually by following the appropriate instructions from chapter 3 of the the ARM DS-5 License Management Guide:
RVDS versions 2.2 - 4.1 (Windows only)
ARM recommends that you use the License Wizard, installed with your tools, to configure your licenses. This will configure the
ARMLMD_LICENSE_FILE environment variable. You can start the License Wizard from the Windows Start menu, for example: Start → Programs → ARM → License Wizard v4.x.
For details on how to use the ARM License Wizard, refer to chapter 3 of the ARM FLEXnet License Management Guide.
Create a new, or modify an existing, Windows environment variable called
ARMLMD_LICENSE_FILE to point to
C:\Program Files\ARM\license.dat (or the equivalent full path to your license file). In most versions of Windows you can do this in the Control Panel, for example, on Windows 7 navigate to System and Security System → Advanced system settings → Environment Variables.
