Installing XLSTAT on a network with the XLSTAT network concurrent license

XLSTAT now offers concurrent licenses.These licenses are network license and can be installed on a server / client network. This tutorial explains how to install and activate your XLSTAT concurrent license on your network.

Requirements

In order to install XLSTAT on your network, each computer of the network has to have Microsoft Excel installed. Two installation setups are needed, the XLSTAT server setup to be installed on the IT computer, this version will manage the XLSTAT network concurrent license and will contact our server using the web, the XLSTAT client that will be installed on each client computer (workstations) that will contact the XLSTAT server on your network to take and release seats of the XLSTAT concurrent license.

Our service uses standard Microsoft ports, the licensing setup will have to be configured to allow file sharing between the license server and the workstations. Ensure that name resolution is supported, and leave ports 136 and 137 open.

All these installations are obtained with the same file usually called xlstat.exe or xlstat.zip.

XLSTAT server installation

The XLSTAT server should be installed first. Run the xlstat.exe file and follow the first steps of the installation.

When you reach that window, choose custom installation:
