Activating license in Linux (Ubuntu)

Hi all,


I am trying to activate Vortex Studio Essentials so that I can use it with V-REP. I already have a windows license that was successfully activated, but I also require using this software in Linux. (Ubuntu 16.04) Am I required to use two different activation keys? How can I go about doing this? I have multiple computers that I want to use this software on.


Thanks for your time reading.

Hi Daniel,


The procedure would be to use the link "Request a new license" from the Licenses page of My Account on our web site (https://www.cm-labs.com/licenses).

And this is what you did...  So thanks for your post!

Hi Daniel,


I also want to install Vortex Studio so that I can used with V-Rep. I have downloaded the Vortex Studio (Linux), but there is no installation file. I am new in this domain (also I am not an expert in Linux), can you please guide me on the installation and activation of Vortex Studio?


Thanks in advanced!


Hi Cosmin,


The instructions on how to do the installation and activation are available here:

https://www.cm-labs.com/vortexstudiodocumentation/Vortex_User_Documentation/Content/Licensing/index_installation.html

https://www.cm-labs.com/vortexstudiodocumentation/Vortex_User_Documentation/Content/Licensing/licensing_activation.html


On Linux, the installation is simply done by

  • creating a destination directory (anywhere you want)
  • cd to the above directory
  • tar -xzvf /DIRECTORY_WHERE_ARE_YOUR_DOWNLOADS/Vortex_Studio_*_x64_gcc48.tar.gz

And the activation can be done via the command line tool: 

  • sudo bin/VortexLicenseManager --activate 1234-5678-1234-5678
  • For more details:
  • sudo bin/VortexLicenseManager --help
Activation can also be done manually, if the machine has no access to the internet.  Refer to the above documentation link.
