Tecplot 360 2011 Installation

The College of Engineering's (CoE) licensing agreement with Tecplot
covers only the CoE, not all of Purdue. Only people affiliated
with the CoE may use the license on the PULS website. If you are
affiliated with the CoE then the license covers all faculty, staff
and students. Purdue owned as well as personally owned systems.
You can get the Tecplot software at:

https://engineering.purdue.edu/PULS/

under Visualization/TECPLOT

The following instructions are for systems NOT currently
under ECN support or "self-supported" systems. If your
system IS under ECN support then we have a different 
process to install Tecplot on your system. Go to this
link and ask for the software to be installed on your system:

Updating the license file


If you have an existing Tecplot 360 installation (2009 or 2010)
and your license has expired then all you need to do is download a
new license file, tecplotlm.lic You can get the new license file on
the ECN PULS website:

https://engineering.purdue.edu/PULS/

Under Visualization/TECPLOT/All Versions/Tecplot license

Just replacing your existing tecplotlm.lic file with the new one will update
your license. It is normally located at the top level of your installation.



Installing Tecplot 360

Once you've downloaded the executable from PULS double click on the
file to start the installation. During the installation you will be
asked for a License number. Use the following:

License number: L15388-6634

After the installation is finished launch the application.
Once Tecplot comes up it will complain that it doesn't have
a valid license. Select OK and the "Tecplot Licensing" window
will open.

The information requested on the License window depends
on whether the machine is primarily located on campus
or is a personally owned laptop or home system.

** If your machine is located on campus use this information:                      
                                     
              License Type: Network
License Server Name: tecplot-license.ecn.purdue.edu
               Port number: 1735
                                     
Select OK and you should now have a valid license to run
Tecplot.

** If your machine is a laptop or home system then you must

download the Tecplot license file, tecplotlm.lic, from the
PULS web site under the heading "Tecplot license".
Once you have that file go back to the "Tecplot Licensing"
window and select "Single User" as the license type. Click
on the "Open License File..." button.  Browse and select the
tecplotlm.lic license file that you downloaded.

Once you've downloaded the Tecplot tar file from the PULS site
double click on the file to untar the files into a directory called
"tecplot_2011x86_x64.105". Open a "terminal" and change your
shell directory to the "tecplot_2011x86_x64.105" directory.

shell# cd Downloads/tecplot360_2011x86_x64.105

# ./setuptec

Hit the return key and accept the license agreement. It will
ask you for a directory name to install the files. Use
something like:

It will ask you if you want to enter you license number. Hit the
return Key to answer yes. Give it the following license number:

L15388-6634

can now run Tecplot. Launch Tecplot (Reminder: you must have
the X11 software installed for Tecplot to run). Once Tecplot comes
up it will complain that it doesn't have a valid license. Select OK
and the "Tecplot Licensing" window will open. The information
requested on the License window depends on whether the machine is
primarily located on campus or is a personally owned laptop or home

Linux
To install TECPLOT 360/2011 for the Linux platform uncompress
and untar the tecplot360_2011_linux.tar file that you downloaded
from PULS.  For example:

shell# mdkir /tmp/tecplot_install_files
shell# cp tecplot360_2011_linux.tar /tmp/tecplot_install_files
shell# cd /tmp/tecplot_install_files
shell# gzip -c tecplot360_2011_linux.tar | tar -xvf -
shell# cd linux

run the "setup" script:

# ./setup

 - choose "Install Tecplot" installation option
 - choose "n" for type of license to indicate a network
   site license
 - enter "L15388" for license number
 - enter "tecplot-license.ecn.purdue.edu" for
   name of the license server host machine
 - the port number is 1735

For more information on how to run the installer,
consult the "TECPLOT 360 2011 Installation Guide"
found in in the directory where you unzipped/untarred
the Tecplot tar file.

After installation of TECPLOT 360/2011,
you must replace the "tecplotlm.lic" file found
at the top level of your TECPLOT 360/2011 installation
tree.  Download the real tecplotlm.lic from the PULS
web site under "Tecplot license". Rename the original
"tecplotlm.lic" and then copy the real "tecplotlm.lic"
in its place:

For example, if you put the unzipped/untarred files in
/tmp/tecplot_install_files and you installed TECPLOT 360/2011
into /usr/local/tecplot and you download the real
tecplotlm.lic file to /tmp/tecplotlm.lic:

shell# cd /usr/local/tecplot
shell# mv tecplotlm.lic tecplotlm.lic-original
shell# cp /tmp/tecplotlm.lic .
