How to set Flex-enabled applications license files search path for different license server setup

Summary

Flex-enabled applications will use the following Enviroimment variable setup to choose a license file to use when we have different license server setups like Single server, multiple servers and three server redundancy.

Question

How can a client application find a license file with a different port number from a different license server setup?

Answer

Most applications specify a location where they expect to find the license file and install it automatically.
However, you can change the license file location by setting the LM_LICENSE_FILE or VENDOR_LICENSE_FILE environment variable to a license search path. Wherever a license search path is specified, it can consist of one or more of the following entries. On UNIX, the license search path entries are separated by colons ‘:’ and on Windows, the entries are separated by semicolons ‘;’.

Single server:       port@host

Multiple servers: Managing Licenses from Multiple Software Publishers or same publisher with multiple servers then set the following 

         Windows -> port1@host1;port2@host2;port3@host3

         Unix          -> port1@host1:port2@host2:port3@host3

Three server redundancyport1@host1,port2@host2,port3@host3
