Upgrading to an Eclipse Classic Multi-User License and Installing a Node

Upgrading to an Eclipse Classic Multi-User License and Installing a Node

Enabling the License

If you are upgrading a Standard Eclipse installation to a Multi-User Installation, follow these steps first. If not, proceed to the “Installing a Node” section.

1. Shut down Eclipse and Eclipse-COMM.

2. Navigate to the Eclipse folder on the PC with the Master Eclipse install, and start xloptions.exe.

3. Where it says “Addtl Users:” – if your fields show 1, then you already entered the value and you can close it down.

If it is blank, enter the multi-user code in the text box on the left. Hit the Tab key and you should see a 1 and a check mark.

4. Click OK.

5. You can restart Eclipse and Eclipse-COMM.

Sharing the Master Eclipse Folder

Follow these steps to install an Eclipse Node on a separate PC.

1. Verify the Eclipse folder on the primary Eclipse PC is Network Shared. A “Shared” folder will have a Network Path displayed in the Sharing tab of the folder properties.

2. Verify the Sharing Permissions for the primary Eclipse install are all checked.

Installing the Eclipse Node

1. Run the full Eclipse install on another PC on the network. The install can be found here.

2. When given the option, choose Node. (Do NOT choose “Node with executable”).

4. An Eclipse icon will be installed on the PC.

5. Right-click on the icon and select properties.

6. Where it shows “Start in” and “Target”, change the path from the hard drive letter of that PC to the PC name of the master:

C:\ -> \\pc-name\ (the example PC name here is AMS-SUPPORT)

7. Right-click on the Eclipse icon and select “Run as Administrator.” After initial setup, you no longer need to select “Run as Administrator” to use Eclipse.
