Optenni Lab 4.1 Installation instructions 2017 09 29

Installation instructions for the Optenni Lab 4.1 software
1. Introduction
The Optenni Lab matching circuit optimization and impedance analysis software supports the node-locked
and floating network license scenarios. The node-locked license allows Optenni Lab to be used only on a
single computer. For the floating network license a computer administrator sets up a computer to act as a
license server for Optenni Lab. End users can install the Optenni Lab software on their workstations and the
license server restricts the number of simultaneous users.
2. Installation of the Optenni Lab software
To install Optenni Lab, run the installer program OptenniLabInstaller4.1.exe. Follow the
instructions on the screen. If you have administrative rights, you can install the program for all users of the
computer or just for yourself. Otherwise, the program will be installed just for yourself.
After the installation, take a look at the folder “Optenni Lab Tutorials” that can be opened in the following
1. Start Optenni Lab and select Help/Optenni Lab Tutorials.
2. Press the Windows start button, press “All Programs”, locate Optenni Lab 4.1 and select “Optenni
Lab Tutorials”.
In the tutorials folder, please take first a look at the document “1- START HERE/Basic functionality.pdf”

3. Obtaining a license file for a node locked license
To obtain a node-locked license file, please follow these instructions:
1. Please turn off the possible radio switch if you are using a laptop computer (the switch that

suitable place on the computer. The file contains information about the network cards and
the operating system.

StoreComputerInfo.exe. An xml file named “computerinfo.xml” will be created in the
current folder.
3. Send the xml file that was generated in the previous step to Optenni Ltd or to your local Optenni
4. You will receive a license file from Optenni Ltd or from your local Optenni distributor by e-mail.

step. The license file will be copied to the installation directory and renamed license.lic and you

4. Floating network license scenario
4.1 For computer administrator: setting up the license server
You will receive separate instructions on setup up the Optenni Lab floating license server.
4.2. For end users: using a floating network license
When a computer administrator has set up an Optenni Lab license server he or she should have
communicated the IP address (e.g. or server name (e.g. myserver.mydomain.com) and
server port (e.g. 6200) to you. Please install Optenni Lab on your computer as described in Section 2 and
start the program. The License Status dialog will open. Press the Floating button and enter the IP address
(or server name) and server port information that you obtained from the computer administrator. Press the
Test button to see the validity of the data. If all the floating network licenses are in use, press the Network
license status tab to see who is using the software. Press OK to leave the dialog. The settings will be
remembered and you will only see this dialog if all licenses are in use or there is some other problem with
the license server. This dialog can also be opened by selecting the menu command File/License.
