The Activator Utility

In addition to the product code and product key, you will be given the following files, based on the target platform for the license file:

Target Platform Required Files
Windows activator.exe
UNIX/Linux activator


VMS activator.exe

*After all necessary license files are installed and the applications are ready to run, UNIX and Linux platforms use a utility called acushare to act as the license manager. The acushare utility must be distributed with all UNIX/Linux products. For more information on acushare, see Acushare License File Management for UNIX and Linux.
