Documentation for installing license files issued for versions prior to 5.0 can be found here.
The possible ways of installing licenses on a server (web applications e.g. JSP pages, Pipeline Pilot):
CHEMAXON_LICENSE_URLenvironment variable (help on setting environment variables)
chemaxon.license.urlJava system property
chemaxon(Windows) sub-directory under the home directory of the user running the application. The following locations are accepted:
(.)chemaxon/license.cxl(file name is fixed)
(.)chemaxon/licenses/*.cxl(from version 5.3.2 only - the license file can have arbitrary name, the extension is fixed)
licenseshell script (Unix) or
license.batbatch file (Windows) available in the Marvin Beans and JChem downloadable packages.
license -hfor the list of available options.
If the licenses are installed later, when a web application is already running, it is not necessary to restart the web server (e.g. Tomcat), the License Manager will automatically and repeatedly check if a license file was installed in the meanwhile. Please note that Marvin JS license installation is different, the installation guide will be sent to you together with the license.
In some cases it can happen if a ChemAxon product is run as a service by the System Profile, than despite all effort no Environment Variable is visible for the product. In this case our license check falls back to search the license in
C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\chemaxon\ folder, which is the user home of the System Profile. I this folder you can place a
license.cxl file or create a licenses folder and copy all your
.cxl files here, as described in the 2. point above.
