Can Group licenses and Concurrent licenses be used together?
For example: A group of developers has a base setup (e.g. Matlab, Simulink, Stateflow) with the licenses tied to their names or computers, administrated through a Group license. And then they share two instances of the Aerospace Toolbox, which is administrated as a Concurrent FlexLM license.

You can combine any license you got. MATLAB has a particular order to search for your available licenses. Search for "Understanding the License Files" in doc to find out the details. It's not very easy to understand. Many involve net license administration or different installation options.
But the end user can always create two license files. One is "license.dat" which contains stand-alone license info and the other is "license.lic" which contains network license info. This way, it will guarantee that it will use your local license first and then search for network license.
Both files are located at MATLABROOT\bin\win32.

Hi Fangjun,
Thanks for the help so far.
I'm trying this out with Matlab 2011a. I don't see any either license.dat or license.lic in my C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2011a\bin\win32 directory.
I do see a C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2011a\licenses directory, in which i have two trial licenses.
I've got standalone licenses for matlab, simulink, matlab coder, simulink coder. I have access to a bunch of other licences managed by FlexLM. I'm trying to figure out how to create a license.dat for my standalone licenses, and a license.lic for the floating licenses.
Any help is appreciated.

Yes. It appears that the folder for the license files has been changed. You can look into your document for accurate information for your version. Follow doc, Installation>License Management>Creating Advanced Configurations>Using Products in a Concurrent Installation from a Stand-alone installation.
