Before installing the ELC, make sure you have the Embarcadero License Certificate sent via email from Embarcadero-licensing <>.

Downloading the Installer

  1. Download links for Windows and Linux are in your License Certificate.
  2. Select the version of the installer that matches your computer platform.
  3. Download it to your system.

Run the ELC installer executable file. For platform-specific instructions, see one of the following sections:

To Run the Installer on Windows

To start the installation wizard, double-click the downloaded ELC.exe file.

To Run the Installer on Linux

Create user elise before installing ELC.

Embarcadero recommends that you install the ELC with superuser (root) privileges. Superuser access is necessary for the following reasons:

  • A superuser can install startup scripts to start the license server as a service when the system boots.
  • A superuser can shut down the license server gracefully when the system shuts down.
  • When the license server is installed and run with superuser privileges, it runs as the user elise, and is started and stopped with superuser privileges, using the rc service scripts provided.
  • If you install the license server as an unprivileged user, the installing user owns the files. In this case, you must start and stop the service manually using the script in <ELC>/bin/ Depending on the platform and server configuration, the user may also be required to take extra steps to prevent the license server process from being killed when the user logs out. Some systems automatically log out a user after an inactivity timeout.
