License Activation

Purchased licenses of the MOSEK software, i.e. not trial or academic ones, must be activated after the software has been installed from the download page.

To activate a license, please follow these steps:

  1. If you have purchased and received a dongle, then consult the dongle installations instructions. Most customers do NOT buy a dongle.

  2. Email the hostname and hostid of the license server to license@mosek.com, following these instructions.

  3. Receive your permanent license file via email from MOSEK.

  4. Install the license file. If it is a floating license then use these instructions. Otherwise use these instructions. If you are in doubt about the license type then see the license system basics explenation.

Note: The above instructions is only valid for MOSEK version 8.0.0.78. If you are trying to install a license for another major version of MOSEK, then check the documentation included in the package of the corresponding version.
