How to update the license remotely with very little effort. This comes in handy when you have alot of computers over a network with expired or soon to be expired licenses.
You will need the PSexec.exe file on your computer (in my case, saved directly on c:) Then create a batch file with this following line:
c:\psexec.exe @computerList.txt -n 15 -c c:\tmp\updatelicense.bat
So what is the updatelicense.bat file you ask...here it is :
@echo off c: cd "c:\program files\ibm\spss\statistics\19" licenseactivator.exe `type your license here` (without the quotes) exit
If you want to update the license on a single computer you can also create a batch file with this line. (no need to create a computer list.txt file).
c:\psexec.exe \\Computername -c c:\tmp\updatelicense.bat
