problems using non-commercial use license

problems using non-commercial use license


I am trying to use Intel® Parallel Studio XE for Linux with a non-commercial license on my Gentoo workstation. The install process could not validate the serial number or display a code for offline validation, so I decided to install using a license file.

After copying the license file information from the registration center page into /opt/intel/licenses/license.lic, I get the following from icc:

$ export INTEL_LICENSE_FILE=/opt/intel/licenses/license.lic
$ ./icc

Error: A license for CCompL is not available (-8,130).

License file(s) used were (in this order):
    1.  Trusted Storage
**  2.  /opt/intel/licenses/license.lic
**  3.  /mnt/disk/burcin/intel/composer_xe_2013_sp1.3.174/Licenses
**  4.  /home/burcin/intel/licenses/license.lic
**  5.  /home/burcin/intel/licenses/nlicense.lic
**  6.  /Users/Shared/Library/Application Support/Intel/Licenses
**  7.  /mnt/disk/burcin/intel/composer_xe_2013_sp1.3.174/bin/intel64/*.lic

icc: error #10052: could not checkout FLEXlm license

AFAICT, the tools that some in the installer say that the license file is valid:

~/.../parallel_studio_xe_2013_sp1_update3/pset $ tools/chklic.x64 -c /opt/intel/licenses/license.lic -a -f CCompL

License file = </opt/intel/licenses/license.lic>

    feature name:                  CCompL (INCREMENT line)
    (license is valid, i.e., has a valid signature)

    license expires:               perpetual license (does not expire)

    VENDOR_STRING= string contents:

    feature name:                  CCompL
    (feature can be authenticated, i.e., can actually be checked out)

The forum doesn't let me upload the log file I get with INTEL_LMD_DEBUG set.


I'd appreciate any help resolving this issue.

Make sure you license file is really on the right place as specified with INTEL_LICENSE_FILE and readable for all users.

Check with:
   ls -al /opt/Intel/licenses/license.lic
and add read permissions if required:
   # chmod +r /opt/Intel/licenses/license.lic (requires (sudo)root rights)

If that dosn't help, send me the LMD log file. Please reply using the 'Send Author A Message' link where you can attach the log file.
