If you did not authorize a client or standalone installation at the time of installation, you can do so at any time by launching the Navigator and clicking on License Manager, located in the Utilities Section.

To instead authorize the Lasergene software silently, follow these instructions:

  1. On the machine where the standalone/client software was installed, open the Terminal.
  1. Drag the installer app into the Terminal to add the path. After the path, type a space, then add this text:

If you are using a standalone key, add:

-q -k xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx

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

If you are using an IP address, add:

-q -l xx.xx.x.xxx

In place of the “x’s,” use the IP address specified in the LasergeneClient'x' folder.

Example of the final command:

/Applications/DNASTAR/Lasergene\ 15/DNASTARLicenseManager.app/Contents/MacOS/LicenseManager -q -l

Thanks for your feedback.
