I downloaded the free Maestro for academics and installed it on my Windows machine, but Maestro failed because it couldn't find the license. How do I get the missing license?
A Maestro license is included in the Free Maestro download (which you obtain from the Free Maestro download page) and should be installed automatically.
If you have installed the software on a Windows machine and the license is missing, you should be able to retrieve it from your download and put it in the required location, as follows.
- Open the downloaded zip file in an explorer window (or go to the location where you extracted the zip file).
- Open another explorer window at your Schrödinger software installation.
- Drag the file license.txt from the zip archive (or extracted archive) to the software installation.
You should now be able to run Maestro successfully.
