As part of an evaluation of Hexagon Geospatial Power Portfolio products, an email which contains a .lic evaluation license file will be provided.

If the .lic file starts with SERVER please refer to the How to install a concurrent evaluation license procedure.


To install the node locked license:


  1. Download the product being evaluated from Hexagon Geospatial download page,
  2. Download the latest Geospatial Licensing Administration tool from our download page, specifically from here.
  3. Unzip the contents of the zip file in to a temporary directory.(Winzip or 7zip are preferred as Windows unzip may cause issues)
  4. As a user with local administrator rights, install the Geospatial licensing Administrator tool by running the Setup.vbs. (reboot if necessary as prerequisites may need to be installed).
  5. Copy the provided .lic file from your email to your local hard drive so it is easily accessible
  6. Run Geospatial Licensing Administrator and navigate to License Management> Legacy Licenses (*.lic)>Add Nodelocked License Source, browse to C:\ProgramData\Intergraph\Licensing
