Mixed Feature Licenses
If you have purchased a mixture of different products, you may wish to read this section.
For example, suppose you have 2 SIMetrix Classics licenses and one SIMetrix/SIMPLIS license. You can run into a problem where one user acquires the SIMetrix/SIMPLIS license, but does not actually need its extra features while another user does require the SIMetrix/SIMPLIS features but cannot acquire a license for it.
To resolve this problem you can start SIMetrix with some special options to tell it to ask only for specific license features. This would usually involve editing the shortcut icon that you use to start SIMetrix. On Windows, the shortcut would usually call something like:
This starts SIMetrix normally in which case it will attempt to acquire all possible license features available. Instead, if this is used:
"C:\Program Files\SIMetrix600\bin\SIMetrix.exe" /r DP
only the features needed for SIMetrix Classic will be checked out.
The following table shows the features used by each of the SIMetrix products:
