License tools for LM-X

A license toolkit for LM-X license servers is available. These tools are included in the regular ATK packages, but the separate toolkit can be used in cases where ATK itself will not be installed on the license server.
Refer to the License server installation guide for instructions on how to install and configure the license server.
The license toolkit is provided as a archive ZIP file (download the file and extract it) for the following platforms:

Current version: for Windows 4.7.5 (compatible with ATK 2015 and earlier). For Linux 4.8.1 (compatible with ATK 2015 and earlier).  NOTE: The LM-X license server requires GLIBC 2.4, there is no GLIBC 2.3 version available.
