How to configure X-Win32 to run off the IS&T license server

  • The standard X-Win32 installation instructions direct users to install it using a standalone activation key. You only need to follow the instructions in this article if you wish to run it off the license server instead.
  • This article will instruct users on setting up license server licensing on a fresh X-Win32 install, or on an X-Win32 installation where licensing had previously been configured.
  • You will need to use the MIT VPN if you use this licensing method to run X-Win32 while off-campus.
