Please, go to purchase menu and make required payment to get license key on your registered email ID. User must read all instructions in purchase menu carefully before purchasing a license key.

  6. Change file permissions of atssiminstaller to make it executable using ‘chmod u+x atssiminstaller’ or ‘chmod 755 atssiminstaller’.
  7. Create a new folder (say named my_lic_folder) to safely store licence.dat and hdddata.dat files, when generated in next step.
  8. Create another folder (say named my_pkg_folder) to safely store all atssim package files.
  9. Set following environment variable in /etc/profile.d/atssim.sh file for bash/sh shell login users.
    1. export ATSSIM_LICENSE_PATH=my_lic_folder
      export ATSSIM_PACKAGE_PATH=my_pkg_folder
      PATH=”$PATH:$ATSSIM_PACKAGE_PATH”
  10. set following environment variables in /etc/csh.cshrc file for csh/tcsh shell login users
    1. setenv ATSSIM_LICENSE_PATH my_lic_folder
      setenv ATSSIM_PACKAGE_PATH my_pkg_folder
      set path = ($path $ATSSIM_PACKAGE_PATH)

  11. Ensure that you give absolute paths of my_lic_folder and my_pkg_folder in above environment variable settings.
  12. Source above scripts or open a new terminal to enact above changes.
  13. Give command ‘atssiminstaller -createlic’. This will ask you to give your email ID and license key, enter correct value and a license file named license.dat will be received from license server in my_lic_folder, you have defined earlier.
  14. Ensure you can see license.dat file in my_lic_folder.
  15. Give command ‘atssiminstaller -download’. Latest regular version of atssim package will be downloaded in my_pkg_folder.
  16. hdddata.dat file is generated in my_lic_folder directory, when you run simulator 1st time. hdddata.dat file contains your hard disk drive identification data for use by license authentication process.

NOTE:

  1. The above two points number 9 and 10 are indicative to set 2 environment vars ATSSIM_LICENSE_PATH and ATSSIM_PACKAGE_PATH in your environment for locatioon of licence files and atssim package files respectively. Please, refer your linux user guide if you fail to set these environment variables.
  2. Though it is not necessary to create environment variables ATSSIM_LICENSE_PATH and ATSSIM_PACKAGE_PATH, we recommend it for safer and cleaner use of simulator. It is necessary to add path of exeatssim (it is simulator’s executable file) to your search path for executable files. If environment variables ATSSIM_LICENSE_PATH and ATSSIM_PACKAGE_PATH are not created then license.dat and hdddata.dat files must be available in current work directory along with atssim package files.
  3. Please, refer license FAQs for more assistance.
  4. Some times due to traffic congestion at server, downloading process of package may consume more time or user may have to try it multiple times due to broken pipes. We regret for the same and expect patience from our clients. Ensure you can see this file in my_lic_folder, later after 1st use.
