We feel your frustration, and we want to help lessen the stress.

An emergency NX License server can help you get you up and running. We can help you obtain the following:

    • For NX1899, the installer is named:
  • NX “emergency” license file from Siemens Digital Industries Software (formerly Siemens PLM).
    • Emergency licenses are not tied to any host ID and the following line:

Keep in mind, though, that the license server is good for up to 7 days and is meant for emergencies.
