This section provides information about licensing for Foglight.

IMPORTANT: See the Administration and Configuration Guide for information about license requirements, managing licenses, and the different categories of cartridges (based on their license requirements).

NOTE: See the Command-Line Reference Guide for information about running the fglcmd utility and the options that can be used with fglcmd, including additional license-management commands.

Installation modes

The default mode for the installer is the graphical user interface mode. However, in cases where a graphics display is not available, the Foglight installer can be started in command-line mode by using the console mode or silent mode.

Console mode

In console mode, the install instructions are in text format, but otherwise are the same as the graphical user interface install.

To execute the console mode, type the following command:

Foglight_Evolve-x_x_x-install_windows-x86_64.exe -i console
