CSiBridge Examples

Running CSiBridge 2017 (v19) using a CSiBridge v20 (2018) license

When running CSiBridge 2017 (v19) using a CSiBridge v20 (2018), the level.txt file created will contain one line with the following information:

  • Line 1: [Product Level] [Product Version]

Product level should be the level of the current license, for example: 'PLUS', 'PLUSRATING', 'ADVANCED' or 'ADVANCEDRATING', etc. See level.txt for a list of levels for each CSI program. Product version should be the version number of the current license. Please note in this case, the product version for the current license is "2018" and not version "20".

For example:

ADVANCED 2018 

Please see your licensing option below for the appropriate locations for where the level.txt and activated license should reside: 

  • Standalone license – 
    • Web-Activated License:
      • License file
        • The CSiBridge v20 (2018) license must be activated on this machine.
        • Copy the "lservrc" file from Computers and Structures > CSiBridge 20 folder into the Computers and Structures > CSiBridge 2017 folder.
        • The "lservrc" file must be copied each time the v20 license is activated on this machine. Once v20 has been deactivated from this machine, the CSiBridge 2017 (v19) product will also stop working.
      • Level.txt: The level.txt file will also be copied into the CSiBridge 2017 folder (Computers and Structures > CSiBridge 2017)
    • Manual License (such as license locked to USB key):
      • License file: Copy the CSiBridge v20 (2018) "lservrc" file into the Computers and Structures > CSiBridge 2017 folder (from Computers and Structures > CSiBridge 20 folder).

  • Network license – The CSiBridge v20 (2018) license will reside on the server for a network license. The level.txt file will reside on the client machine, copied into the CSiBridge 2017 folder which contains the CSiBridge.exe.
