Products built with v2012_1 will begin shipping in Q3 2012 and will require license servers of the same version to support them. Please refer to TechNote MG66951 on Suppotfor download and update information and begin planning your upgrade process now.



Hardware Key (Dongle) Discontinuations:


With MSL v2012_1, there are a two discontinuations for specific custom hardware keys and limited platform support for the standard FLEXID keys. If you are using a CPLUS or PADS/SSI Pink key or a FLEXID key other than the FLEXID 9- USB key, you'll want to check our Hardware Key (Dongle) Discontinuations and Replacement FAQ to see if your key is supported.

It may seem very basic but there is more to setting an environment variable on Windows than just knowing where to click. Whether you already know where variables are set or you don't the How to set or edit an environment variable on Windows  doc will serve as a good reference for how to accomplish this frequently required task.
