LicensingΒΆ

A license file from OpenEye Scientific Software is required to run any OpenEye toolkit. A license file can be requested/obtained by contacting OpenEye at sales@eyesopen.com.

At startup, the toolkit looks for a valid license in the following default locations:

  • In a file specified by the environment variable OE_LICENSE.

  • In a file named oe_license.txt in the directory specified by the environment variable OE_DIR.

  • In a file named oe_license.txt in the user’s platform-specific local OpenEye application data directory. The location of this directory is detailed below:

    • Linux/UNIX:

      ~USERNAME/.OpenEye

    • Mac OS X:

      /Users/USERNAME/Library/OpenEye

    • Microsoft Windows Vista/7/8.1/10:

      C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\OpenEye

  • In a file named oe_license.txt in the current working directory
