As an alternative to traditional License Server installation, you may also install the DNASTAR License Server from the Windows command prompt:

  1. Download the network installer executable DNASTAR’x‘LicenseServerWinInstaller.exe (where ‘x’ denotes the version number).
  1. On the network host machine, open a command prompt.
  1. Drag the installer executable into the command prompt to add the path. After the path, type a space and the following text:

--mode unattended --dnastarProductKey xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx

In place of the “x’s,” use the alphanumeric string from the My Licenses page of the DNASTAR website.

Example of the final command:

C:\Users\<username>\Desktop\DNASTAR1500LicenseServerWinInstaller.exe --mode unattended --dnastarProductKey xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx

  1. Press Enter. If a security warning appears, choose Yes.

A folder named LasergeneClient’x’ will appear on the desktop. This folder contains the .lshost files you will need to set up the clients.
