You will need the ThinPrint License Server if you want to install a ThinPrint Engine v10 or higher, the Management Services or the Host Integration Service. This also applies for a trial version with a demo or 30-days license key.
The server must be a domain member. Users or servers with ThinPrint Engine installed can also be located in subdomains or trusted domains. Read-only DCs are not supported.
The name resolution must be set up forwards and backwards on the Domain Name System (DNS) – forward and reverse lookup.
Supported server operating systems:
- Windows Server 2019
- Windows Server 2016
- Windows Server 2012 R2
- Windows Server 2012
- Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
each one with the following default settings:
- TCP ports 135 and 4005 must be opened in the inbound direction so that the ThinPrint Engine can communicate with the License Server
- TCP port 4004 must be opened inbound for the Management Console
License Server 11 can be installed together with the following ThinPrint components on the same machine (provided it’s supported by the respective operating system):
Note! If License Server is to be installed on a server together with ThinPrint Engine and/or Mobile Session Print, install License Server first.
Do not install License Server (on the same machine) together with:
ThinPrint Mobile Print
The installation of License Server on a domain controller is not recommended.
The following components are needed and will be checked during Readiness Check:
- .NET Framework 3.5
- .NET Framework 4.0
- Microsoft ASP .NET MVC 3
- Windows Server 2008/2008 R2: .Net Framework 4.5 or Microsoft hotfix KB2600088 or KB200217

To license users, you can use the following browsers:
- Microsoft Internet Explorer, version 10 or higher

Monitor with a minimum resolution of 1024×768 pixels
User account for installation
The server on which the license server is installed, must be a member of a domain. For all stages of installation and configuration, you will need a normal domain user account with local administrator permissions:
- To install and configure the software, set up a normal user account in the AD (Active Directory). LicService used here as an example.
- Then give this account local administrator permissions on the license server.
Note! The server(s) with installed ThinPrint Engine(s) must be in the same domain (or subdomain/trusted domain) as the license server.
Furthermore, the license server needs at least a one-way trust to the Active Directory containing the user accounts.
