Does Eagle need a license?
Add on Card Drivers (Notebook & Desktop PCs) Tools & Utilities. Recovery DVD Replacement Exercise; Recovery Solution (Notebook, Desktop & Tablet PCs) Top of Page. Feb 01, 2021 The major growth drivers for this market are increase in awareness on passenger and vehicle safety, increasing demand for connected vehicles, and growing demand for technologically advanced HUDs. The head-up display manufacture landscape is diverse and continually evolving. Some drivers may have additional implementations, each one optimized for a different usage. The Driver Implementation pull-down control in the MHC graphical interface allows you to select which implementation the current configuration will use. Normally, you can use only a single implementation of a driver in a given configuration. The Bluetooth word, mark, and logo are owned by the Bluetooth SIG, Inc. And any use of such marks by Microvision, Inc, is under scans over 8 months at 100 scans/day Fig. Page 2: Technical Specifications.
Eagle is licensed ussing FlexLNET Publisher licensing technology.
If you have an issue with FlexLM or FlexNET licensing for a product other than Macrovision Eagle then please contact Flexera Software
The type of license you have depends on the product version you are using. You can find out more available about license types here.
In 2012 Eagle licensing changed to FlexNET Publisher (FNP) systems. Both HaspID and FlexLM licensing are nw EOL (End of Life) and phased out. We do encourage users continuing to use our product to move to the FNP.
There is a new Licensing Guide for developers and administrators which is available from the link on this page.
Do I need a driver?
All FNP FlexID licensed Eagle software requires a USB hardware device. The standard Eagle installations will install the driver automatically. ONLY USE THE SUPPLIED DRIVERS
FlexID - You MUST install the supplied driver BEFORE plugging in the USB FlexID. You must use the supplied Macrovision driver and not the plug and play driver found automatically on Windows.
When do I need a new license file?
License files usually have a built in expiry date. This will be automatically renewed to the latest version if the license is covered by TUC (Technology Upgrade Contract). Extended licenses locked to a specific verion and machine are available but these may not be upgraded or transferred to new platforms.
Is Licensing different between Versions?
Each major and interim version release normally requires a license file upgrade. FlexNET licensing is now combined for different versions meaning the license file supplied will run all of these versions simultaneously if you have the latest version license file. Refer to the Licensing Guide for details.
Is there any special FlexNET known issues for standard Windows installations?
By default the Internet Connection Firewall (ICF) is turned on with the releases of Windows, this means that when you start the License Server the Windows Firewall will pop up prompting you to either keep blocking this connection or unblock the connection. This occurs for the MVISION.EXE, LMGRD.EXE and EAGLE.EXE files. If when requested you allow these connection and try to check out a license everything should be fine, however if you have blocked this connection and someone on the network tries to checkout a license, they will be denied with Error -96 Vendor Daemon down. So to prevent this from happening you must ensure you unblock both the lmgrd and the mvision on the Windows (or any other) Firewall. If this is not set locally and is done via a group policy by your Network Administrator, you need to check with the Administrator that these connections have been allowed. Note these policies should also be replicated to other network monitor systems you may have installed.
2016 - FNP (FlexNET) Licensing
The only supported licensing system for Eagle is the FlexNET Publisher licensing system. FlexLM and Hasp licensing are now EOL and will need to be upgraded to FlexNET. Contact sales or support for details.

How do I resolve the problem where FlexNET Tools fails to find FlexID number in the Host ID tab ?
Resolve this issue by removing any existing drivers and reinstall the supplied FlexID drivers.
I have tried to remove FlexID drivers and there still seems to be some evidence that they are not fully removed. What can I do as they still appear to exist and any new installation of the drivers fails?
The FlexidClean Utility should remove drivers of all types, particularly older release versions, allowing you to start with a clean driver install.
I have a couple of Flic barcode scanners that have been collecting dust on the shelf for a couple of years. Last time I used these I was using Windows XP as my primary operating system. Just the other day I installed Tellico and decided to catalogue my huge collection of books. A barcode scanner sure would make my life easier. So now I needed a Linux driver for these fine devices. It took me about 6 hours to conclude that the only software wedge available for the Flic on Linux is closed source payware and only supports tethered connections not BlueTooth. As a nostalgic guy who dreams of the 'good old days, when men where men and wrote their own drivers' I thought; 'hey, it's only serial communication, how hard can it be?'. So I sat down and wrote my own software wedge for the Flic barcode scanner in Perl. It took me all of one night. And now I'm sharing it with you:
NOTICE: Update: Version 1.1 is now out. This version fixes a race condition that could cause the linebreak to be inserted before or somewhere in the barcode itself. Download is available below.
These instructions are for Debian based operating systems (like Ubuntu), but the procedure should be quite similar on any Linux system.
Before using this software you should reset your barcode scanner to factory defaults by scanning the barcode in the user manual. Some of the non-default settings available on the scanner are (not yet?) supported by this software.
- Download the latest source from https://github.com/deadcyclo/flicserv
- open a terminal
- unpack the downloaded file to any directory you like
tar zxvf FlicServ.tar.gz
- Make sure the two Perl programs are runnable
sudo chmod 755 FlicServ pop
- Install the required Perl modules and applications
sudo apt-get install libdevice-serialport-perl libthreads-perl libthreads-shared-perl xautomation
- Go ahead and add a global shortcut for the pop application. If you don't know how to do this follow the example in my global keyboard shortcut guide, but add a shortcut to
This has been tested with the serial cable that comes with the Flic and also the serial cable connected via a R232-USB adapter, but any cable from Microvision should work.
- First find out which port the scanner is connected to for example
/dev/ttyUSB0. I will use
/dev/ttyUSB0in all of the examples from now on. Just switch out
/dev/ttyUSB0with whatever port your scanner is connected to.
- Open a terminal
- Start the application
- Start scanning barcodes. Every time you scan a code you should see the text
in the terminal where xxxxxxxxx is the barcode you scanned.
- You can also disconnect the barcode scanner from the cable, go away and scan a whole bunch of barcodes, come back and reconnect the scanner. All of the scanned codes should be pushed automatically and the scanner gives you a little blipblipblip to let you know that it's memory is empty.
- Now open a text document in your editor of choice and hit the global shortcut key you previously added. The first barcode you scanned should now be inserted.
The terminal should now show the text
- This can be repeated as many times as you scanned.
- Pushing and poping can be done in any order, at any time.
If you add the
--noserver switch when starting the application the application will automatically pop barcodes as soon as you scan them.
If you add the
--linefeed switch when starting the application the software will simulate pressing enter after a barcode is poped.
--linefeed works both in
--noserver and regular mode.
- Open a terminal.
- Click the scan button on the barcode reader to make sure it's in discoverable mode.
- Enter the command
- The result should be a list somewhat like this:
- Now copy the MAC address (list of numbers with colons) next to the name of you barcode scanner.
Enter the command
hcitool cc 00:A0:96:0B:21:78(exchanging the MAC address for the one you found previously).
- The bluetooth icon on your menubar should start blinking and a popup should show asking you to enter a pincode. (My computer sometimes doesn't show the popup. If this happens to you just doubleclick on the blinking BlueTooth icon and you will be requested the pincode).
- Enter the pincode
0000(The standard pincode for Microvision barcode readers).
- Go into BlueTooth preferences (right click on the BlueTooth icon) and tag the barcode reader as Trusted.
/etc/bluetooth/rfcomm.confas root in your editor of choice
- Add the following entry to the file (using the MAC address you previously copied):
Drivers Microvision Drivers
- If you already have an entry for rfcomm0 just replace 0 with a higher number.
- Run the command sudo
- You can now use the software in exactly the same manner as described under tethered use. Just replace
/dev/rfcomm0. Make sure always to put the scanner in discoverable mode (by clicking the scan button) before starting the software.
I just received the following script that should enable automatic bluetooth reconnect (I have not tested the script) from Ravikiran Vishnuvajhala:
