Import a single-user license¶
The parameter Stata license must be used to import a Stata single-user license file.
Alternatively, the user can activate a new license using the Terminal window of the virtual desktop:
$ cd $STATA_HOME $ sudo ./stinit
In this case, the user must provide the license's serial number, code and authorization keys.
Connect to a network license¶
Depending on the user institution, it is also possible to request access to a Stata network license server using the parameter Select Stata license server. Network licenses must be added to an active project by means of a grant application. Project admins can restrict access to the license as discussed here.
