Trial license problem


I just downloaded PGI Accelerator Fortran/C for Linux and received an email with the trial license keys. I created license.dat in /opt/pgi but when try to compile a program I get the following msg:

[root@yosemite c-programs]# pgcc picalc.c
pgi-cc-lin64: LICENSE MANAGER PROBLEM: Future license file format or misspelling in license file.
The file was issued for a later version of FLEXnet Licensing than this
program understands.
Feature: pgi-cc-lin64
License text: SUITE_DUP_GROUP=U TS_OK SIGN=“182C 6A48 482D 88CE 2355 9906 3627 4F0E A76E 59D6 E28E A996 1C0A C33B DAEB 081A 273B 8F79 FEA7 B919 3976 F5B7 689C 7CE8 117C 72DD B0BA F05D 3A9B E2A5”
License path: /opt/pgi/license.dat:
FLEXnet Licensing error:-90,313
For further information, refer to the FLEXnet Licensing documentation,
available at “”.
[root@yosemite c-programs]# echo $LM_LICENSE_FILE

Any suggestions ?



I have sent a new starter license to your web account address. Store it as $PGI/license.dat
and DO NOT run a license service.
