    lmUtil Arguments / License Questions




      lmUtil, -the License Checker outputs quite a lot information and parameter for lmutil.

      The question now is similar to "lmUtil - parameter for "Automation Pro License" " this discussion here.

      This thread here should be a more general thread about lmUtil and its parameters, not especially like the one above on Automation.


      My Question this time is,


      what is:

      1. "intexpflow" - License, - is that the "Concurrent Design-License" ??
      2. "wgpcb" vs. "pcbexpedition", where is the difference here ??
        pcbexpedition returns always 0 licenses used even when I know that we have some users on that tool.
      3. what licenses are minimal needed for running xDx Designer ??
      4. is there an offical list which parameter is which tool within the big environment ?


      Note for some people who are new on this:

                The License Status of a certain license can be ckecked like this:


           C:\MentorGraphics\EEVX.2.1\SDD_HOME\common\win64\bin\lmutil.exe -f wgpcb


      Thank you

          Speaking to the old licensing model strictly.

          1. I think "intexpflow" means integrated expedition flow.  I believe its part of the licenses checked out for schematic capture when you are using the iCDB flow between Designer and Layout.


          2. wgpcb is one of the features that gets checked out when using layout 200.  I don't have pcbexpedition in my license set so not sure on that one.


          3. I think it depends mostly on the flow you are in but the absolute minimum to open Designer is just viewdraw.  you'll have other issues but it will open. 


          4. I don't understand the question.
