Find an Available License to Activate

Ryan Roper -

--This article applies to the following GoldSim product versions: 10.5 (SP6 or later), 11.0 (update 8 or later), and 11.1 (update 4 or later)--

This article describes how to use the GoldSim License Portal to check for available (activatable) licenses in an organization. For an overview of the GoldSim License Portal, go here.

In the License Portal, available licenses are referred to as Activatable Entitlements. These are licenses that are not currently activated on a machine. If your organization has a license administrator that manages GoldSim licenses, be sure to check with your administrator before activating a license on your machine.

It is assumed that you already have a GoldSim License Portal user account. If this is not the case, you should contact your license administrator and ask for a new user account to be set up for you. Alternatively, if you have an activation ID and you simply want to check if it is available for use, you can login to the License Portal with the activation ID. Note, however, that you will only be able to see the status for this one license.

Assuming that you already have a GoldSim License Portal user account, open a browser window and navigate to the License Portal login page:

After successful login, you should see the main page of the GoldSim License Portal with a list of Activatable Entitlements.

If you do not see this page, or you are on a different page in the License Portal, you can always navigate to the Activatable Entitlements page by clicking the License Activation menu and selecting Activatable Entitlements.

Each line item on the Activatable Entitlements page shows the Activation ID, Product name, license Version and license Expiration date for a license that is available for activation. Refer to the Product name to see what modules a license has.

Once you have found a license for an appropriate GoldSim Product and Version (and confirmed, if necessary, with a license administrator that it is okay to use the license), highlight and copy (Ctrl+C) the Activation ID.

Then you can launch GoldSim, click the Activate Standalone License button and paste (Ctrl+V) your Activation ID into the License Activation dialog (note that if you are activating a Network license, you will need to use the GoldSim License Server Activation Utility, GLSActUtil).
