1.b. For Windows 10, right click on the Start Menu and select System.


2. Select Advanced system settings.
3.
In the Advanced tab, select Environment Variables.
4.
Select New.
5. You will now be able to enter the environmental variable. Most environmental variables are given to you in the form "Variable_name=Variable_value". So if you were given the environmental variable "UGS_LICENSE_SERVER=28000@license-1.cae.wisc.edu', you would enter "UGS_LICENSE_SERVER" in the Variable name field and "28000@license-1.cae.wisc.edu" in the Variable value field as shown below.
