Question

How to set Environment Variable FLEXLM_TIMEOUT through Regisitry ?

Answer

  • Flexenabled Application reads environment variables from registry location HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\FLEXlm License Manager. It is not reading the environment variable if mentioned at location HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Environment which is default. Client functionality searches environment variable in order:-
    1) First from process environment block with getenv(). If not set, then
    2) Search in registry location HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\FLEXlm License Manager Example: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\FLEXlm License Manager
    String Value : FLEXLM_TIMEOUT Data 3000000

From what the Answer is saying, is this true?

If the user sets FLEXLM_TIMEOUT here:

1) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment\

(This is where system environmental variables are stored in the registry)

and also here:

2) HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\FLEXlm License Manager\

then the value at 1) is read by FLEXlm client software, and 2) is ignored.

Is that correct?

Thanks!
