Can I use the same license manager and license file for multiple Minitab products?

Yes, you can use the same License Manager and license file to manage multiple Minitab product licenses. To do this, simply add the license information for the second product after the information for the first product in the license file. You do not need to repeat the first three lines that contain server information. Copy only from the INCREMENT line down.

Once the new INCREMENT is added, do one of the following:
  • On a Windows computer, save minitab.lic to C:\Program Files\Minitab\License Manager and restart the Minitab License Manager service.
  • On a Mac computer, save minitab.lic to the desktop and reinstall the Minitab License Manager.
Example 1: A minitab.lic file that simultaneously manages Minitab and Quality Companion
