Installing RobotStudio

Setting up a License

You will need to be on the university wifi or vpn for the license to work. However you only need the license for advanced functionality such as simulation.
When opening RobotStudio for the first time, you will be prompted to enter a license code. Select Network License.
Enter the license IP address robotstudio-lm.its.unimelb.edu.au
After install, you will need to check the license out to use it at home. To do this select options.
Under the Network License Menu select I want to check out or check in a commuter license.
Enter the number of days you wish to check out the license (the number of days you are enrolled in the subject).
The license will now run outside the University wireless and you have completed the installation.

Install Robot Ware 6.08

Robot Ware is required for some operations in Robot Studio. Robot Ware is the same software that runs on the robot. The robots use version 6.08.
RobotWare and RobotStudio are two different pieces of software. RobotStudio is the application you installed already, and is used to program the robot. We use RobotStudio version 2021.
RobotWare is the software that runs on the robot, it also runs on your computer for simulation purposes. RobotWare 6.08 is installed on the robots at the MSD Robotics Lab.
