Quick Install and License Setup

SystemVue can be installed on a Windows machine after downloading the installation file from the Keysight EEsof EDA website, as illustrated.

Obtain SystemVue License File

SystemVue requires a license to run. You can either apply for an Evaluation or a Purchased license. Once the license request is approved, a license file (with .lic extension) is sent as an email attachment. Save this file on your computer. For example, you can save it in the C:\Program Files\Keysight\EEsof_License_Tools\bin\licenses folder.
