Minitab 16: Prompts for Licensing Information on First Launch

If Minitab 16 does not automatically launch as expected, you may need to specify the license file needed to run the software.

To specify the license file:

  1. Install and launch the Minitab software.
  2. If prompted to specify the License Manager or choose a file, choose Specify the License File.
  3. Browse to the license file minitab.lic located by default in the C:\Program Files\Minitab\Minitab 16 folder on your machine.

    Note If you have a 64-bit version of Windows, the minitab.lic file is in C:\Program Files (x86)\Minitab\Minitab16.

  4. Click the Open button.
  5. To launch the software, click the OK button.
