Product activation with a license server is not working for some software development products. This problem only occurs for floating licenses.
Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2013 SP1 Update 1 for Linux* and Windows*
Intel® VTune™ Amplifier XE 2013 Update 13 and 14 for Linux* and Windows*
Intel® Inspector XE 2013 Update 8 for Linux* and Windows*
When installing one of the affected products using product activation via license server you will see an error "The license file provided is invalid", even if the license server is up and running and client-server connection is established.
Workarounds (apply one of them):
- Upgrade Intel® Software License Manager running on the license server to version 2.2.
Download link: https://registrationcenter.intel.com/RegCenter/Download.aspx?productid=1938 (choose the right OS and platform; only users with floating license registrations have access to this link).
- Use serial number (alphanumeric code of format xxxx-xxxxxxxx)
- Use license file (file extension .lic).
Note: Remote activation is not supported for floating licenses.
