ifort: error #10052: could not checkout FLEXlm license

ifort: error #10052: could not checkout FLEXlm license


I have been reading this forum for 3 days but I cannot find solution!

I have downloaded non-commeriacal Fortran compiler (l_fcompxe_2013_sp1.1.106.tgz) and install it without any problem.

Also fixed the dependencies but unfortunately cannot fix this error....

ev@ev-Satellite-A200-1BP:~$ ifort -v

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

License file(s) used were (in this order):
    1.  Trusted Storage
**  2.  /opt/intel/licenses/*.lic
**  3.  /opt/intel/composer_xe_2013_sp1.1.106/bin/ia32/*lic
**  4.  /opt/intel/composer_xe_2013_sp1.1.106/Licenses

ifort: error #10052: could not checkout FLEXlm license

I have changed my .bashrc file as

source /opt/intel/composer_xe_2013_sp1.1.106/bin/ifortvars.sh ia32
export INTEL_LICENSE_FILE=/opt/intel/licenses/*.lic

add this lines at the end of file. And

source ~/.bashrc

then press enter. And I also restarted my computer. Moreover I know that my licence is registered. So what is the PROBLEM????

Why cannot somebody make non commerical program easier than this..

Some body has suggestions??

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

Remove export INTEL_LICENSE.... from the bashrc since this environment variable is also set up with the compiler source script. Copy over the license file into /opt/intel/licenses and it will be found there.

Does this help? Regards, Hubert.

Dear hubert ,

thanks for the quick reply. I removed the line  "export INTEL_LICENSE...." from .bashrc but unfortunately i did not understand what you mean by

"Copy over the license file into /opt/intel/licenses and it will be found there."

can you explain


/opt/intel/licenses is the default license path. All license files (.lic) in there are automatically be found by the compiler. Hubert.

yes there is a licence file in "/opt/intel/licenses" directory

but nothing changed whan i write

ifort -v

What issues the following:

ifort -V &>LMDlog.txt

Please upload the logfile in a private message (Send Author A Message). Please upload also your license file (.lic) from /opt/intel/licenses.


This error happened to me when I set a soft link to the file libstdc++.so.5 in "/opt/intel/ActivationTool/Activation/lib/ "directory.I have run the command given by hubert,could you see the logfile for me.

the logfile said "REJECT: keyword ENDIAN=<str> (value mismatch), required value <BOTH1>, got value <EIA>",and i saw in the license file it's EIA indeed,Can I change the value directly?

Sorry,I don't know how to send a private message ,so I append the log file in attachment,thanks for your help. 

I do not see an attachment. Please answer to this communication via "Send Author A Message" and attach or copy/paste the log.


I try install l_fcompex_2015.2.164 under ubuntu 14.04  64bit  but when I write ifort -v then

Error: A license for FCompL is not available now (-96,7).

A connection to the license server could not be made.  You should
make sure that your license daemon process is running: both an
lmgrd process and an INTEL process should be running
if your license limits you to a specified number of licenses in use
at a time.  Also, check to see if the wrong port@host or the wrong
license file is being used, or if the port or hostname in the license
file has changed.

License file(s) used were (in this order):
    1.  Trusted Storage
**  2.  /opt/intel/composer_xe_2015.2.164/bin/intel64/../../Licenses
**  3.  /root/Licenses
**  4.  /opt/intel/licenses/STU_L___ZMFJ-xxxxxxxx.lic
**  5.  /Users/Shared/Library/Application Support/Intel/Licenses
**  6.  /opt/intel/composer_xe_2015.2.164/bin/intel64/*.lic

I follow the instructions below  but not solve the problem, Can you help me?




Let me check your license first. I'll come back to you soon with more suggestions how to set up the license manager.

(Obfuscated your SN) in your request).

Regards, Hubert.


Hi Jenny,

For your floating license you need to set up a license manager first. This can be done on a license servers or on any machine that can provide licensing service.

Please download one from the following: https://registrationcenter.intel.com/RegCenter/Download.aspx?productid=2080&pass=yes

Install the tarball on the license server (e.g. Linux 64-bit):

   tar xzvf l_isl_server_p_2.3.0.002_intel64.tar.gz
   cd flexlm

following all instructions. Please have the license file ready for installation as you can have started the license manager immediately after installation.

You can check if all is working:

   netstat -ltnp

shall display the license manger (lmgrd) and vendor daemon (INTEL) in LISTENING mode.

You can check also if licenese manager can check out all licenses included in the license file:

   ./lmutil lmstat -c server.lic -a

Finally you can use the lmutil tool from the installed flexlm directory on clients to test the license check-out on clients too. You must use the same server name that is specified in the license file

   lmutil lmstat -c 28518@<servername>

The last action will be to set up the licenses on clients. There are several ways to get this done. I receommend the following procedure:
- Use the unchanged server license to install products on client machines; use activation mode 'Alternative activation .... Use license file' during installation.
- After successful installation modify the licene file on clients as follows (under /opt/intel/licenses):
-- Replace host id (=MAC address) with ANY
-- Add USE_SERVER as 2nd line and remove all the rest. So your licnese file will look like:
    SERVER <serveraname> ANY 28518

That's it. If you have further questons or problems, let me know. But please take care to not include any confidential data (serial number, hostid etc.) here in the public thread. If you want to send me confidential data, use the "Send Author A Message" link.

Regards, Hubert.



I have the same problem. I installed non commercial version of ifort. I did this change in my .bashrc

source /opt/intel/composer_xe_2015/bin/compilervars.sh ia32

When I type ifort:

ross@ross-HP-Compaq-dc7900-Ultra-Slim-Desktop:~$ ifort

Error: A license for FCompL could not be obtained
Your license has expired.
