Description

This article contains instructions on how to restore the functionality of ABBYY Lingvo x3/x5/x6 on workstations in a network after the Licensing Server has been renamed.

1. Add the licenses in the ABBYY Lingvo x3/x5/x6 License manager and activate them. If you used Per-Seat licenses, recover their status using the Recover Status button.
2. In the administrative installation package, create a file with the name 'Licensing.ini' in the ABBYY Lingvo x6 or ABBYY Lingvo x5 or ABBYY Lingvo x3 folder.
3. Create a parameter with the name 'NetworkServerName' in the [Licensing] section of the *.ini file. This parameter can be used to specify the name of the server. Example:
[Licensing]
NetworkServerName=MyComputerName
4. On workstations with Concurrent licenses, repair or re-install ABBYY Lingvo from the administrative installation folder.
