I installed the Simulation CFD 2013 on a local machine running Windows 7. After the installation I tried to launch the program but an error emerged. It is an Autodesk License error. I tried the measures on the error message and checked that license is not expired. Am still stuck with the error so please help.
Cannot initialize license manager: ADLM: startup failed
Autodesk Simulation Licensing shows error
This is a known problem common to localized Window OS because the Simulation CFD 2013 as configured for the language of that your OS is localized to during installation. Supported by Languages that are supported by Simulation CFD 2013 include French, German, Japanese, Chinese and English.
Thus the ADLM language environment has to be changed to one of these languages preferably English.
To change the language go to: HKLMsoftwareAutodesk Simulation CFD13.0Locale change its value from "du-NL" to "en-US" , that is "Locale"="en-US". The language is changed to US English and the problem is solved.
