1. Install the license manager (License Manager) and program (Cadence SPB 16.5). Ignore and click next when a windows pops up asking for license file.
2. Copy the files in aspirinCadenceLicenseManager (i.e. pubkey.exe, pubkey, LicenseManager.cmd) to installed directory (e.g. C:CadenceLicenseManager). Run the LicenseManager.cmd.
3. Copy the files in aspirinCadenceSPB_16.5tools (i.e. pubkey.exe, pubkey, Tools.cmd) to installed directory (C:CadenceSPB_16.5tools). Run the Tools.cmd. The script may take up to several minutes to run.

Change the "this-host" to your computer hostname, which can be identified using the following method "Start -> Run -> cmd -> ipconfig /all". Once done and saved, run the LicGen.cmd and a "license.lic" is created.
