The Mentor Standard Licensing (MSL) v2012_1 release based on  FlexNet  v11.10 is now available and applications are shipping that  require  license servers running this latest version of licensing.


See how easy it is to update your license server by watching a video on Updating Your Licensing Manager (Server) on Windows (Video).

If you get a licensing error from one of your applications, aside from ensuring licenses are available and searching SupportNet for the error message, you can use our Mentor License Utility (MLU) to    generate a detailed diagnostic report that may help you or one of our    CAEs determine the root cause.


Please take a moment to watch the video demonstration for Generating a Run-time Diagnostic Report with the Mentor License Utility (video).

New releases are shipping and may  require updates to hardware key (dongle) drivers. The hardware key  drivers are now included in the current release of the Mentor Install  Program and there is a video that demonstrates how to update them.

The following command will install the required 32-bit compatibility package:
