In order to enable the software, NAG will issue you with a licence key. The licence key is a simple text file containing details of the software that will be enabled. A licence key can be requested as follows:


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

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


To request a licence 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 your Technical Support. Once you have obtained the licence key, store the text of it in a file.

For example:

The location of the licence 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 licence 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 licence. For licences requiring a licence server, refer to the Kusari Installation and User Guide above.
