Why do I get a "Failed to load flexlmclient library" error when I start RTI Developer Platform?

Note: Applies to RTI Developer Platform 1.1.3 and 1.2.1.
FlexLM is no longer a dependency for RTI Connext 4.5x and above.

When starting RTI Developer Platform on a Linux system, you will see the following error if your system lacks the correct libstdc++.so library:

RTI Developer Platform failed to load flexlmclient
library due to an Unsatisfied Link Error

The native FLEXlm library (used by RTI Analyzer for license management) requires libstdc++.so.5. However, Linux systems such as RHEL 5.1, Fedora Core 5 or and newer do not have libstdc++.so.5 installed by default.

To install libstdc++.so.5, run the following command as "root" user:

yum -y install compat-libstdc++-33
