Handling programs for authorizing or licensing SIMATIC products.

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
This page includes the latest versions of the various handling programs for authorizing or licensing SIMATIC products.

Description
The licensing procedures of the SIMATIC products is based on license keys. These license keys are supplied on USB sticks or by downloads via the Siemens Industry Mall, or they are already preinstalled on the data carrier. You can manage the license keys only with a special handling program that is on the associated product data carrier and is installed by default with the software. More information on license keys is available in Entry ID: 19100818.

Handling programs for license keys:

  • ALM (Automation License Manager)
    The ALM is the standard handling program for managing, transferring, testing and repairing license keys.
  • TIA Administrator
    Different function modules can be incorporated in this web-based framework for administrative tasks for the TIA Portal. The basic package included here provides the functions for managing software and licenses including direct connection to the Online Software Delivery (OSD) services.

With the previous product versions authorizations were used to a certain extent. Authorization of SIMATIC Industry Software requires a red or yellow authorization disk. This disk might include an older version of the Windows handling program AuthorsW or the handling program AUTHORS (MS-DOS) for transferring the authorization. Later software packages install the version V2.4.2 or V2.5.2 of AuthorsW on the hard disk and register it in the system. In this case there is no handling program on the authorization disk.

Get in touch with Technical Support if your license key or authorization is defective. Technical Support will help you to restore defective license keys or authorizations. More information about this is available in Entry ID: 772175.
