In order to enable the software, NAG will issue you with a license key. The license key is a simple text file containing details of the software that will be enabled.


A GUI is supplied to request and install the license key. This can be found by locating your NAG product in the Start/All Programs menu and selecting "Request or install license key". To obtain the details needed to obtain a license click "Request new license". Return the information that it displays by e-mail to to the NAG Response Centre.

Once you have obtained the license key, run this GUI again to install it.


To request a license key, run the program khostid (refer to the Installer's Note or download the appropriate file from the table above). This utility must be run from a command prompt. Return the information that it displays by e-mail to the NAG Response Centre. Once you have obtained the license key, store the text of it in a file.

For example:

The location of the license file must be made known to the NAG application by setting the environment variable NAG_KUSARI_FILE to the full pathname of the file before the application is invoked (some applications define a default license location, if you choose this location, you do not need to set the environment variable - see the Installer's Note for details).

For example,
   in the UNIX C-shell, type:
     setenv NAG_KUSARI_FILE [INSTALL_DIR]/nag_kusari.lic
or in the UNIX Bourne shell, type:
     export NAG_KUSARI_FILE


No other actions are required to install a trial or node-locked license. For licenses requiring a license server, refer to the Kusari Installation and User Guide above.
