Installing a node-locked license for multiple plugins

If you use different Arnold plugins in different applications, it may be simpler to have just one copy of the node-locked license. To do that, you set the solidangle_LICENSE environment variable to point to the location of the .lic file. Then each plugin (such as MtoA, HtoA, or C4DtoA) will use the environment variable to find the node-locked license. 

Another advantage of using solidangle_LICENSE to point to the license file is that you can install, uninstall, and update your Arnold plugins without having to copy the license file every time.

  1. Create a folder where you can put your node-locked license file. For example:

    OSExample
    WindowsC:\Users\stephen\solidangle\licenses
    OS X/Users/stephen/solidangle/licenses
    Linux/home/stephen/solidangle/licenses

     

     

  2. Set the solidangle_LICENSE environment variable to the location of the license file. For example:

    OSExample
    Windowsset solidangle_LICENSE=C:\Users\stephen\solidangle\licenses
    OS X (bash)export solidangle_LICENSE=/Users/stephen/solidangle/licenses
    Linux (bash,ksh)export solidangle_LICENSE=/home/stephen/solidangle/licenses
