In the ArcGIS Administrator Wizard, under Section 1. Select a product, select the option for Advanced (ArcInfo) Concurrent Use

In the available field, type arcgislic.geneseo.edu, now click OK

The Application should now be licensed
ArcGIS Desktop will only be able to connect to the license server if you have a working campus internet connection. If you are located off-campus, you must establish a VPN connection in order for ArcGIS Desktop to launch.
ArcGIS Desktop is not available on macOS or Chromebook platforms. If you need access from one of those devices, please try using the Geneseo Virtual Computer Lab
If you encounter trouble licensing the product, close all open ArcGIS Desktop applications, then try launching the ArcGIS Administrator program from the Applications List using the Run as Administrator option seen when right clicking on the program from the Start Menu.
