Use this option if you need to replace an expired license file with a new one for an existing installation

Place the new license file "*.lic" in the following directory, making sure not to change the license file name:

  • On Windows*:
    <installation drive>\Program Files\Common Files\Intel\Licenses
    For example: "c:\Program Files\Common Files\Intel\Licenses"
    Note: If the INTEL_LICENSE_FILE environment variable is defined, copy the file to the directory specified by the environment variable instead.
  • On Linux*: /opt/intel/licenses
  • On OS X*: /Users/Shared/Library/Application Support/Intel/Licenses

Note: You will likely need administrative/root privileges to copy the license to the named directory.

Make sure to remove expired license files from the directory to ensure the correct file is being used.
