Update: Please Read
As of March 2011, SAMreport-Lite will no longer be distributed with any Autodesk portfolio product or Suite, either within Electronic Software downloads, or on physical media such as USB thumb drives or DVDs. SAMreport-Lite and supporting documentation will continue to be provided as a downloadable utility from the link provided below.
A version of SAMreport called SAMreport-Lite is available to help you track network license usage. SAMreport-Lite provides some of the features from SAMreport, a report-writing product made by Flexera®. Using SAMreport-Lite, you can generate a network license-usage report, called "Usage Summary," for Autodesk software that uses FLEXlm licensing technology. SAMreport-Lite generates usage summary reports in a variety of output formats including HTML, text, and Report Interchange Format.

- On the computer, close all software applications and log on as Administrator.
- Download and unzip the setup_win.zip file to a local temp directory (see below for download information).

- After Java Runtime Environment is successfully installed, double-click setup_win.exe and follow the installation instructions.
- After SAMreport-Lite is successfully installed, create a desktop shortcut as follows:
- right click on desktop, click New and then Shortcut.
- Browse to “C:\Program Files\Macrovision\samreport\report.exe” and then append it with the following string: -- -javaver 1.6.0_18. It should look like this:
