Hello

Thanks for the complete documentation.

I have a question here-

1.  When I install the License Manager for Windows, LMtools.exe also gets installed inside the FLex_LM folder.But it needs admin rights to run the application.

2. Also, a separate link for LMTools.exe is given-

Thanks

The error message that you are getting is due to an update on Windows 10, you can use the 64bit and it will still work as expected.

Regards,
