I am trying to install AutoCAD 2011 using a network single server license. After it was installed, I cannot open the application because of the error message that is prompted on my screen "A Valid License could not be obtained by the license manager" error [-5.412.0]
Please see attached file for the exact error. I will be waiting for your feedback. Thank you.
Failure to install Autocad 2011
It seems that your machine is not able to pull the license.
Try checking LICPATH.LIC file on your machine (Open with Notepad) and see if it points to your license server. If OK, then continue with restarting your license server and re-reading the license (LMTOOLS). After that, go into the command prompt (Start>type "CMD").
Once in command prompt type PING and the address of your server. If you can ping it then that's a good news. After that, check in the license Server if you have "LMTOOLS ignores license path environmental variables" unchecked. If this is the case, then your machine may have an environment variable set to point to the server. If this does not help, see if you can go into Install and Licensing forum.
