DS License Server is a program developed by Dassault Systemes. The most used version is 6.213.10680, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version.

The software installer includes 121 files and is usually about 22.55 MB (23,642,112 bytes). In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 10 as well as Windows 7 (SP1).
