Adding a named user license for Arm Allinea Studio

When you have obtained your license file from Arm, follow these steps to make it available for use.


  • Ensure that you have obtained a valid license from Arm (see Get software).


  1. Create a directory called licenses within the /opt/arm/licenses directory.
  2. Copy your license file to the licenses folder.
    • If you choose to put the license file in a different location, you must set the ARM_HPC_COMPILER_LICENSE_SEARCH_PATH environment variable to point to it. See Changing the license file location.
    • Do not edit the contents of the license file because doing so might prevent the license from working.
  3. Arm Forge and Arm Performance Reports search for individual licenses in their specific installation directories. If you are using an Arm Allinea Studio license and you aren't using separate licenses for these tools, set the ALLINEA_LICENSE_DIR environment variable to point these tools to your Arm Allinea Studio license.
    export ALLINEA_LICENSE_DIR=/opt/arm/licenses
