Frequently Asked Questions

Where do I find my Host ID?

USB Key

The host ID is printed on your USB hardware key. The format is "9-########" where the last 8 digits are hexidecimal (numbers 1 - 9, and letters A - F). If the printing is hard to read, a software utility that can read the number inside the key can be downloaded here. Find Host ID Utility.


How do I redeem my license?

Log on to Keysight Software Manager and register if you are a first time user. Using the information on the Software Entitlement Certificate that came with your product, follow the prompts to enter your host ID and redeem your license. Your license file will be emailed to you.


How do I install my license?

Three things need to be in place for your license to work:

  1. FlexLM software is needed to read your dongle key, so make sure to install it when installing N1500A or 8507xE software from the setup program. A PC re-boot is required after the FlexLM software is installed.
  2. Copy the license file that was emailed to you to the Data and Setup folder. The default path depends on Windows OS and software product. (N1500Av2015 allows the license file to be saved to any folder).
