Licensing your software
In all cases, you need a license key to start the product. Your license administrator
can tell you which license key to use and where to obtain it.
The License Key Administrator (LKAD) is a tool that imports license keys to your
license server. LKAD provides a wizard to simplify the process.
The Rational Setup wizard installs LKAD with each IBM Rational product. If the
product is not already licensed, you can start the LKAD wizard when the
installation process is finished. You can also start LKAD by clicking Start >
Programs > IBM Rational > IBM Rational License Key Administrator. The
LKAD main window and wizard page open simultaneously. For more information,

installation, your product is already licensed.
