There are different types of license files for COMSOL Multiphysics, depending on how many users, computers, and modules you have. Some of the most common license types are:


  • CPU-locked Single User License (CPU): This license type allows you to install and run COMSOL Multiphysics on one computer. You can use all the modules that you have purchased with this license type.



  • Named Single User License (NSL): This license type allows you to install and run COMSOL Multiphysics on up to four computers, but only one at a time. You can use all the modules that you have purchased with this license type.



  • Floating Network License (FNL): This license type allows you to install and run COMSOL Multiphysics on any number of computers on a local area network (LAN), but only a limited number of concurrent users. You can use all the modules that you have purchased with this license type.



  • Class Kit License (CKL): This license type allows you to install and run COMSOL Multiphysics on any number of computers in a classroom or lab setting, but only for teaching purposes. You can use all the modules that are included in the Class Kit License package.



  • COMSOL Server License (CSL): This license type allows you to install and run COMSOL Server on one computer on a LAN or WAN. You can use COMSOL Server to host and manage applications created with COMSOL Multiphysics and share them with other users via a web browser.



  • Academic Server License (ASL): This license type allows you to install and run COMSOL Server on one computer on a LAN or WAN, but only for academic research purposes. You can use COMSOL Server to host and manage applications created with COMSOL Multiphysics and share them with other users via a web browser.

You will then receive a license file attachment that you need to save in your installation directory. You will then need to restart the license manager service to complete the update process.



After updating your license file, you can launch COMSOL Multiphysics or COMSOL Server and start using the software with the latest version and modules.


How to Troubleshoot Common License File Issues




Sometimes, you may encounter some issues with your license file that prevent you from using COMSOL Multiphysics or COMSOL Server properly. Here are some tips on how to troubleshoot common license file issues:


  • To check your license status and expiration date, you can use the License Status tool in COMSOL Multiphysics or COMSOL Server. This tool will show you information about your license number, type, modules, users, and expiration date. You can also use this tool to refresh or deactivate your license file if needed.



To resolve license errors and warnings, you can refer to the error messages that appear on your screen or in the log files. These messages will usually indicate what is causing the problem and how to fix it. Some of the most common causes of license errors are:


  • Incorrect or outdated license file: Make sure that you have updated your license file correctly and that it matches your software version, modules, and license type.



  • Invalid or expired license: Make sure that you have renewed your subscription or extended your trial period before it expires.



  • License server not running or not reachable: Make sure that the license manager service is running on the server computer and that it is accessible from the client computers. Check if there are any firewall or network issues that may block the communication between the server and the clients.



  • License limit exceeded or user not authorized: Make sure that you do not exceed the number of concurrent users or computers allowed by your license type. Also, make sure that you have the correct user name and password to access the license server.




  • To contact COMSOL support for assistance, you can use the Support Center on the COMSOL website. You will need your COMSOL Access account credentials to log in and submit a support request. You can also browse the Knowledge Base, the Documentation, and the Forum for more information and solutions.



If you follow these troubleshooting tips, you should be able to resolve most of the license file issues that you may encounter. However, if you still have problems or questions, you can always contact COMSOL support for further help.
