Please make sure that you have installed at least Mestrelab License Server 1.0.4-3090 on your server machine and that all the users are running at least Mnova 5.1.1 on their computers.

Instructions for Windows Servers

In the Start menu, click on ‘Run’ and type ‘regedit’.

Navigate to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMestrelab Research S.L.MLicAdminSettingsReleasePolicyButtonShown

And replace False with True, as you can see in the picture below:

Then, run MlicAdmin and click on the Release Policy button (red square in the picture below) to display the Idle Release Policy dialog box, where you will be able to select the desired Timeout (Minimum value* = 30 minutes). If you check the box 2 minutes warning, the user will get a warning message telling that the session will be closed in 2 minutes.

*It is also possible to select a TimeOut of 10 minutes, but in that case, after having followed the steps above, you will need to create a new registry entry (type DWORD32) called ‘MinTimeout’ and once there, customize the value for the 10 min.

If your OS is a 32 bit, you will need to create the MinTimeout registry here:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMestrelab Research S.L.MLicServerSettingsReleasePolicy

If it is 64 bit:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodeMestrelab Research S.L.MLicServerSettingsReleasePolicy

Then you need to also edit the ‘Timeout’ entry to 10 (if this Timeout entry has a value higher or equal to 30, the MinTimeout will not give any effect). Finally restart the server.

After that, if you go to MLicAdmin/Release Policy you can see that the Idle timeout is already 10 min.

Finally save the changes and restart MlicServer.

Instructions for Mac Servers

From the User´s Home directory (or from a Terminal), please open the file located in:
Library/Preferences/com.mestrelab.MLicAdmin.plist

And change the property Settings.ReleasePolicyButtonShown from No to Yes, as you can see in the picture below:

Then, run MlicAdmin and click on the Release Policy button to display the Idle Release Policy dialog box, where you will be able to select the desired Timeout (Minimum value = 30 minutes).

It is also possible to select a Timeout of 10 minutes, but in that case you would need to edit (by using PreffSetter, for example) the file com.mestrelab-research-s-l.MLicServer which is in System Preferences.

Once there create a new key (Integer class) called Settings.ReleasePolicy.MinTimeout with the value of 10.

Finally save the changes and restart MlicServer.

Instructions for Linux Servers

From terminal type: /root/.config/Mestrelab Research S.L./MLicAdmin.conf

Replace the line: ReleasePolicyButtonShown=false with ReleasePolicyButtonShown=true

For example:

[Settings]
ReleasePolicyButtonShown=true

TablesState=@ByteArray(bx15x1&x8ex8eYxe8g.ax15x1&x8ex8eY
xe8g)
WindowState=@ByteArray(xe9xc1x4xbfx3W)

Then, run MlicAdmin and click on the Release Policy button to display the Idle Release Policy dialog box, where you will be able to select the desired Timeout (Minimum value = 30 minutes).

If you need to select a minimum value for the Timeout below than 30 mins, please edit this file:

/etc/xdg/Mestrelab Research S.L./MLicServer.conf

and add to the “[Settings]” section the line:

ReleasePolicyMinTimeout=10

Finally save the changes and restart MlicServer.
