Script
Hi
For Arena 15 to use a license server, only the x86 version works!
Use the Deploy-Application tool to install Arena 15 and FactoryTalk 4.
(You can download a preconfigured package from here, setup and ready to install Arena 15 and FactoryTalk 4. )
1. Add the folders "Install" and "Redist" from the Arena 15 32bit downloaded files to the Files folder after extracting Arena15.zip.
2. and replace the following in the "Deploy-application.ps1" script:
  • replace ENTER_PID_KEY with the correct PIDKEY
  • replace ENTER_CORP_NAME with the correct company name
  • replace IT_DEP with the correct username.
  • replace SERVER_PORT_NUMBER@SERVER_FQDN with the correct port number and license servername (the full name)


Just to give an impression the central part of this script, installing Arena and FactoryTalk, look below:
