Can I use the same license manager and license file for multiple Minitab desktop products, including add-ons?

To do this, simply add the license information for the second product or add-on 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.

After the new INCREMENT is added, save minitab.lic to the following location and restart the Minitab License Manager service.
  • 64-bit version: C:\Program Files\Minitab\License Manager
  • 32-bit version: C:\Program Files (x86)\Minitab\License Manager
Example 1: A minitab.lic file that simultaneously manages Minitab and Minitab Workspace
