You need an active, valid license for the LCS85 to be fully functional. To verify that the LCS85 has an active license, complete the following steps:
  1. Type Software Manager in the Search box of the Start screen.
  2. Select Software Manager from the Apps results.
  3. If the LCS85 software is not listed as Licensed in the Software Manager, go to Licensing the LCS85 and follow the directions in that section to activate your license.

During LCS85 operation, the Metasys system periodically checks the product license. If the LCS85 software becomes unlicensed while you are logged on, the LCS85 continues to run but displays a warning message every ten minutes.

If the object count of the LCS85 exceeds 10,000 objects, you need the 15,000 object upgrade license. You must license the 15,000 object upgrade in the Software Manager. You must not exceed 25,000 objects. If it exceeds the object limit, a warning message appears in the Metasys SMP UI. You also receive a warning message if you download an archive database from SCT that exceeds your object count limit. Warning messages appear every ten minutes in the SMP until you delete enough objects to return within your limit, or activate the 15,000 upgrade license on the LCS85 machine if you have not already done this.

Note: To check the object count at any time, see the Object Count field on the Diagnostic tab of the LCS85.
