About this release

As BETA LM v7.x is a prerequisite for running any BETA Software Suite Product, starting from the v23.0.0 and onwards, constantly aiming to provide you with first-class support, we announce the second bug-fix release v7.2 of the License Manager series.

There are numerous highly anticipated implementations to look forward to in this new version, along with noteworthy enhancements and fixes.

Α detailed list with a selection of the most important items follows:


Enhancements and Known issues resolved

Enhancements and Known issues resolved

"Kill User" Tool

On Windows OS, beta_lm_kill_user command would not be successfully executed, even by users with administrative privileges.

Service Installation

BETA_LM “on-the-go”, i.e., the usage of a USB Ethernet/WiFi card for the license server, is now supported for Linux OS, too.

Opt File

Custom groups can now be directly defined inside the administrator's license.opt file.

Through a new syntax, users, groups, etc. can now be limited to a specific number of credits, to be used for any feature.

Credits reservation is now also possible using the new syntax for credits limitation, in combination with a new exclusion syntax.

Furthermore, all users can now be denied/limited, excluding specific users or groups.


For more details about the new software features, enhancements and corrections please, refer to the Release Notes and Setup Guide documents.



BETA LM Tools 7x does not require a new host key. Existing license files are compatible with the new license manager.

The new version is compatible with all the previously released BETA CAE Systems software.

Future versions of BETA CAE Systems software will continue to be compatible with the previous version of BETA LM Tools.
