LICENSE: Floating License: Name Not Displayed

Information in this article applies to:

  • C51 Version 8
  • C166 Version 6
  • C251 Version 4
  • MDK-ARM Version 3


We have installed a Floating User License and we are using it. But when I am reviewing the current users, the list appears to be empty. What can be wrong here?


The user names are taken from the file C:\KEIL\TOOLS.INI. Make sure that this file contains a correct entry for NAME= under the section [UV2]. Also make sure that the section [UV2] appears at the beginning of the file.

NAME="Surname", "FirstName"

You may also change the name entry when a user is working from two computers to distinguish the different workstations.

Example for the Notebook:

NAME="Surname-NB", "FirstName"
