From this date, GeoStudio perpetual licenses that are not current on maintenance will become machine-locked to the computer or server where the software is installed.

This means they cannot be moved to another device or restored to the current device in the event of, but not limited to, software failure, virtual machine re-hosting, formatted hard drive and so forth.

In this article we explain explain problems that arise when using an out-dated license manager with a newer version of GeoStudio.  You may receive the following warning message when installing GeoStudio:

One or more of your license servers will not work with this version of GeoStudio because the version of the license server is older than the version of GeoStudio.


  • Both the lmadmin license manager and GeoStudio rely on underlying licensing technology (the license 'toolkit) to communicate with one another.
  • The license manager can serve licenses to GeoStudio clients that have a toolkit version number equal to, or less than its own version number.
  • At times is becomes necessary to update GeoStudio and lmadmin license toolkits.
  • Unless both are updated, you may experience this warning.
  • You will typically experience this message when installing GeoStudio 2016 version (or later) while using a license manager earlier than lmadmin 9.

Before You Begin

  • Since this is only a warning, you can bypass this message and continue installing GeoStudio by checking the 'Disregard license status warning, and continue with upgrade' check box.
  • Although you can continue installing GeoStudio, you may still have a problem with getting licenses from the license manager.
