[quote:968723f22d="deus"]hello is there an easy way to install all the license keys?
Yes - but it depends on your definition of "easy". :-)
The license PAKs (both base and layered products) are structured in such a way that they can be run as a .COM file (if you are familiar with Unix, think: shell script).
If you have the facility to cut-n-paste between the platform that you received the emailed PAKs from and VMS, just create a file on VMS ($create base.com, for example), and cut-n-paste the PAK. Type CTRL-Z to create the file, and [email protected] will register the base license.
A similar procedure will register the layered products.
A word of caution, though - I've found that I needed to edit the files in a couple of places where the "$" character was not the first character on a line of text.
DCL will barf at those places, and refuse to run the rest of the procedure, so check the resultant .COM file before "executing" it.

malmberg December 12 2017 HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.

malmberg September 10 2017 https://sourceforge.net/p /vms-ports/wiki/VMSInstal lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?
DoeveR August 07 2017 Where can I find the write up on running VMS 6.1 using the simh emulator?
