FSU Biology - Computer Support Facilities - Installing Geneious

  • Choose the installer appropriate for your operating system from the list below (PLEASE NOTE that Biology only has licenses for Geneious 9.1, which these links point to installers for. If you manually download a newer installer, it won't function with our FLEXnet license.):
  • Download and run the installer. Choose an appropriate location to install the software on your local machine and press Next through the installer. For most computers, the program's installation defaults will be sufficient.
  • Once installed, launch the software. It will create a window called "Enter your License Details". Choose the second option: "Use floating license server". In the Server field, enter "licenseserver1.bio.fsu.edu", in the Port field, enter "27001" if it is not already present. Press OK.
  • After a moment, you should see a window saying "Obtained license from FLEXnet server". Press OK.
  • Enjoy using Geneious!


NOTE: This software should work over FSUSecure, or over the FSU VPN, but may not work from outside of FSU if not connected to the VPN.
