Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis 2010 - License Migration

1. PURPOSE OF THE UTILITY


Robot Office applications till version 21.0 use Robobat protection system. The goal of this feature is to allow those prior versions of Robot Office applications to use the new Autodesk license, installed with Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis 2010 or Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis 2010 Professional. Protection keys used for Robot Office applications will be migrated to a new system of Autodesk licenses. The utility is available only for Robot Office version 20.1 and later.

2. FUNCTIONALITY OF THE UTILITY


Robobat protection system serves several ways of licensing. The following scenarios must be managed properly for local protection keys: 1. single dongle migration 2. migration of several dongles. The document describes the most typical type of license migration: a single dongle migration.

3. DESCRIPTION OF THE MIGRATION OF A SINGLE DONGLE


To start license migration run the License migration wizard. Note: Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis 2010 or Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis 2010 Professional must be installed on the same machine.

4. LIMITATIONS
The utility will allow usage of Robot Office version 20.1 and 21.0 on the same machine as Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis. When a user returns dongles they will not be able to run earlier than V20.1 version of Robot Office - if users wish to run these legacy products then they should contact their accredited Autodesk VAR to discuss options. Note: Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis 2010 or Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis 2010 Professional must be installed on the same machine.
