How to build lmflex with Visual Studio 2015 for certificate licensing

How to build lmflex with Visual Studio 2015 for certificate licensing

Building the 32bit FNP toolkit for certificate use:

First, you’ll need to build the FNP toolkit (11.16.4.0_v6) via the command line using a Visual Studio Command Prompt.

1: Add your vendor keys and vendor name to the lm_code.h, then set your seed values and signature strength – this file can be found in the ‘..\i86_n3-11.16.4.0_v6\machind’ directory:

e.g.

#define VENDOR_KEY1 0x8e3d842c

#define VENDOR_KEY2 0x15ec254d

#define VENDOR_KEY3 0x2c8769d8

#define VENDOR_KEY4 0x85f62e41

#define VENDOR_KEY5 0x89f5ec54

 

#define VENDOR_NAME "demo"

 

#define LM_SEED1 0x65413216

#define LM_SEED2 0x45313165

#define LM_SEED3 0x32313315

 

#define LM_STRENGTH LM_STRENGTH_239BIT

2: Edit the makefile and add your vendor name to the ‘VENDORNAME’ field - this file can be found in the ‘…\i86_n3-11.16.4.0_v6\i86_n3’ directory:

e.g.

VENDORNAME = demo

DAEMON = $(VENDORNAME).exe

3: in the ‘…\i86_n3-11.16.4.0_v6\i86_n3’ directory change ‘demo.rc’ to the name of your vendor daemon:

e.g.

demo.rc > Flexera.rc

4: In the VS command prompt run the following: …\i86_n3-11.16.4.0_v6\i86_n3> nmake -f makefile

Now your FNP toolkit is built to use certificate-based licensing. Follow the steps below to build lmflex using Visual Studio. 

 

Steps to build lmflex using Visual Studio 2015:

1: Create a Win32 Console Project called 'lmflex'.

2: Copy the lmflex.c code from the toolkit, found in the following location “..\i86_n3-11.16.4.0_v6\machind” and comment out the Trusted Storage code as shown below. Or you can copy the code below for just certificate only licensing:

3: Right click on the lmflex project and open “Properties”.

4: In the “General” settings change the ‘Character Set’ to ‘Use Multi-Byte Character Set’.

5: In the “C/C++” settings under the ‘General’ section add the following to the ‘Additional Include Directories: …\i86_n3-11.16.4.0_v6\machind and …\i86_n3-11.16.4.0_v6\machind\activation\include

6: In the “C/C++” settings under the ‘Preprocessors’ section add the following to the ‘Preprocessors Definitions’: _CRT_SECURE_NO_WARNINGS

7: In the “Linker” settings under the ‘General’ section add the following to the ‘Additional Library Directories: …\i86_n3-11.16.4.0_v6\i86_n3 and …\i86_n3-11.16.4.0_v6\i86_n3\activation\lib

8: In the “Linker” settings under the ‘Input’ section add the following libraries to the ‘Additional Dependencies’:

lm_new.obj

lmgr_trl.lib

libsb.lib

libcrvs.lib

.\activation\lib\libnoact.lib

libredir_std.lib

oldnames.lib

kernel32.lib

user32.lib

netapi32.lib

gdi32.lib

comdlg32.lib

comctl32.lib

wsock32.lib

shell32.lib

Rpcrt4.lib

oleaut32.lib

Ole32.lib

Wbemuuid.lib

wintrust.lib

crypt32.lib

advapi32.lib

Shlwapi.lib

userenv.lib

msvcrt.lib

vcruntime.lib

legacy_stdio_definitions.lib

legacy_stdio_wide_specifiers.lib

ucrt.lib

Dhcpcsvc.lib

libvcruntime.lib

9: In the “Linker” settings under the ‘Ignore All Default Libraries’ set this to ‘Yes (/NODEFAULTLIB)’.

10: In your project change the lmflex.cpp filename to lmflex.c and the stdafx.cpp to stdafx.c then build lmflex.

Now, you should be able to run lmflex and perform a checkout from a license server.

Steps to set up a license server to serve a certificate license:

1: Edit ‘counted.lic’ from the ‘…\i86_n3-11.16.4.0_v6\i86_n3’ directory and change the vendor name ‘demo’ to your vendor name.

e.g.

SERVER this_host ANY

VENDOR demo

USE_SERVER

#a counted license

FEATURE f1 demo 1.0 permanent 4 SIGN="003D B062 54D1 47E3 1FF6 145F \

                59CE 0200 8002 FE69 0FBC F4FF AA10 FFB3 6EB3"

To

SERVER this_host ANY

VENDOR flexera

USE_SERVER

#a counted license

FEATURE f1 flexera 1.0 permanent 4 SIGN="003D B062 54D1 47E3 1FF6 145F \

                59CE 0200 8002 FE69 0FBC F4FF AA10 FFB3 6EB3"

 

2: encrypt ‘counted.lic’ license file using the VS command prompt:

e.g. …\i86_n3-11.16.4.0_v6\i86_n3> lmcrypt.exe counted.lic

3: Start the license server by running the following in the command prompt:

e.g. …\i86_n3-11.16.4.0_v6\i86_n3> lmgrd.exe -z -c counted.lic

4: Perform a checkout using the lmflex you built previously:

e.g. …\i86_n3-11.16.4.0_v6\i86_n3> lmflex.exe 

Enter "f1" to demo floating functionality

Enter "f2" to demo node-locked functionality

Enter feature to checkout [default: "f1"]: f1
