The Version 13.1 software has been compiled using version of FLEXlm.

*** Security note ***

The licence server daemon (lmgrd.exe) shipped with release 13.1 has also been upgraded to FLEXlm

The V13.0 and V12.x Oasys LS-DYNA licence daemon was compiled with version 11.11 of FLEXlm, however a security flaw was identified in FLEXlm licence servers running and earlier, see for more information. Therefore it is recommended that you upgrade your licence server to the version included with this 13.1 release.

Backwards compatibility:

  • The licence server supplied with this 13.1 release is compatible with previous Oasys LS-DYNA software releases from version 9.x onwards.  Therefore any existing installations from version 9.x onwards will continue to work with this server and the associated licence files.

For UNIX based licence servers (HP-UX, SUN) please contact Oasys Ltd.

32 bit packages

Please contact Oasys Ltd if you require 32 bit versions of the software.

Advice for users generating graphics on Linux machines without local displays, typically clusters

Where batch graphical post-processing is performed on remote clusters we have observed problems when the standard OpenGL graphical libraries are used, giving images of inferior quality.  We have also observed problems when interactive graphics are generated remotely and displayed locally on the desktop through a network, as this can give unacceptably slow graphical performance.

Better results can sometimes be obtained in these situations from executables linked with the MESA emulation library, since this removes any dependence upon OpenGL and – in the remote display case – reduces network traffic.  If you wish to have executables linked in this way, or would like further advice, please contact us.
