4.3.2. Request a License File from the Self Service Licensing Center

You must log into the Intel® Self Service Licensing Center to create and manage your licenses. From the Self Service Licensing Center Home page, use the new License Assistant. You can find this assistant on the bottom right corner of every page.

For new purchases, select one of the following options and navigate through the guided steps to generate and receive the license file by email:

  • Find and generate license by License Activation Code
  • View your unassigned licenses and generate license
Intel® sends the license file to the email address in your My Intel account profile.
Note: If you do not receive your license email within 12 hours of requesting a license, or if you do not know all the required information to complete the process, contact customer support via the Help option in the Intel® Self-Service Licensing Center.

If you have a floating, multi-user license, the FLEXlm licensing scheme allows you to set up two redundant license servers to serve licenses. You must request a license file for redundant servers from the Self-service Licensing Center.

For software, IP, or Development Kit legacy licenses with a maintenance expiration date prior to January 1, 2009, you can now obtain a license file via the Intel Self-Service Licensing Center's Generate Legacy Licenses option.
