Why does RTI Developer Platform fail to start on Fedora 7?

Note: FlexLM is no longer a dependency for RTI Connext 4.5e and above.

Fedora 7 lacks a library required by FlexLM. RTI Developer Platform uses FlexLM. You will encounter the following error during start up of RTI Developer Platform:

License Error
RTI Development Platform:failure to load flexlmclient library. due to an UnsatisfiedLinkError.

To correct this problem, run (as root):

yum -y install compat-libstdc++-33

This will install libstdc++.so. and create a symlink to it in /usr/lib.
