The versions of ADS could be installed at the same time ?
For instance let's say that I would like use ADS2002 and ADS2002C at the same machine with different licensing.

Any response will appreciate.
 

This could be tricky since the program uses the environment variable A/g/i/l/e/e/s/o/f_license_file to point to the license file.
I suppose you could change the license file names back and forth.
Another thing to try is to write a scipt to do this. This is covered on page 3-15 of the install manual.
Another thing to try is to combine the files into the same file. This is on page 4-20.
You could also start l/m/t/o/o/l/s, change the pointer to the appropriate license file and the start the server and re-read the license file.
As a note, here at work we have only one license file on the network and it works on both 2002 and 2002C. So why do you need two different ones?

Thanks a lot for the information.
I would like to use for both version because I think there are some problems in Momentum simulations.
Before 2002C version , simulations and measurements were consistent but with 2002C version , they are diversed. I don't know why but in fact
the sample simulations give approx. same results but on my project ( very small submicron planar structure ) the results are unphysical. Therefore I will try once again.
 

Well my experience is no.
It would conflict.
 

Re: The versions of @DS could be installed at the same time

ADS 2002A and 2002C installations works fine on the same PC. The license server env var is the same for both install's and they both share the same licenses. In some cases this arrangement is required as some vendor libraries does not yet run under e.g. ADS 2002C, only -A.

However, be careful where you locate the \users\default\ folders. For ADS 2002A use c:\ads2002a\users\default\, for ADS 2002C use c:\ads2002c\users\default\ so you keep them separated. Else you have to use regedit.

See 'Using Multiple ADS Versions' in Installation in ADS Documentation http://eesof.tm.agilent.com/docs/adsdoc2002C/doc.html for details.
