Licensing Errors on installing Autodesk Entertainment Creation Suite 2012

Hello. I was hoping to find a solution here to my predicament. It is regarding Autodesk Entertainment Creation Suite 2012 installation. I keep getting connected errors.

I installed the network version of Autodesk, and when launching it, I got my first licensing error.

I posted the screenshots below.

Licensing Error

A valid license could not be obtained by the network license manager.

If you are still unable to access a license, contact your system administrator.

Error [-4.412.0]

OK

I clicked on the Close button on the bottom of the error message, and another error pops up.

The software License check out failed.

Error 20.

OK

There is no other option but to click on the OK button;hoping that it will close the above error messages but another error showed on my screen.

License not obtained.

Tried Mudbox 2012, error 20.

License method: set by installer to 'network'

Lic. file override: environment variable MUDBOX_ALT_EN is not set.

OK

What are the things to consider before installing it so I can get rid of those error messages?

Kindly please help Experts!

Thanks.

Error: A valid license could not be obtained by the network license manager
 
When you tried to obtain a license remotely for a network-licensed AutoCAD® 2007-based product from the license server, you could not. However, you were able to obtain a license for a previous version of the product. You were first presented with the FLEXlm License Finder dialog box, and then you received the following error message:
 
A valid license could not be obtained by the network license manager.
 
Error [1.5.-15]
 
With some products, you may also receive the following error message:
 
A valid license could not be obtained by the network license manager.
 
Error [1.5.-18]
 
 
This situation can occur when you access the license manager through a VPN, dial-up or a slow DSL/ISDN link.
 
AutoCAD® 2007-based products contain licensing enhancements that increase network bandwidth and latency requirements. To resolve this problem, it is strongly recommended that you increase network bandwidth or reduce latency to an acceptable level so the license management technology can function correctly.
 
If increasing network bandwidth is not an option, you can increase the amount of time the program waits for a response from the license manager by configuring an environment variable at the client workstation. Follow these steps:
 
Right-click My Computer. Click Properties.
(for Vista and Windows 7, click the "Advanced system settings" link.)
In the System Properties dialog box, click the Advanced tab.
On the Advanced tab, click Environment Variables.
In the Environment Variables dialog box, under System Variables, click New.
In the New User Variable dialog box, enter FLEXLM_TIMEOUTfor the name and 10000000 for the value.
Click OK to close each dialog box.
Launch the Autodesk application.
If you are able to obtain a license, the value of 1000000 microseconds (1 second) is sufficient. If you still cannot obtain a license, repeat the procedure; increasing the value in 1000000 microsecond increments until you are able to obtain a license from the license server..
 
 
The software License check out failed. Error 20                                                   http://blog.yam.com/jcdesign/article/11651799
 
I found this site might help you, but you have to use translator.
 
Your principal problem is to not have this folder :
“C:documentsAll UsersAnwendungsdatenFLEXnet"
Before uninstall, disable Flexnet service.
Then reinstall and verify that you have the folder.
If not launch one time Max, verify if it works and if you have the folder.
 
Also have you see this article :
 
 
Can you confirm which version of Parallels you use?
Product requirements for Max 2012 on Mac with parallels :
 
something more :
you say "After trying to install Parallels on my mac all my 3ds max application no longer work".
Was Max installed and working before you install Parallels ?
Or was Max on Boot Camp ? I don't understand.

Hi,

I have noted your question and my analysis tells me that your new AutoCAD is trying to execute with the old Versions License. Please try removing the old AutoCAD  completely then restart your computer.

The next step is to remove the registry values of the AUTOCAD You may now follow these few steps:

  • Click on the Start Button
  • Select Run Type REGEDIT then follow the following path by expanding the folders
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE | SOFTWARE | Autodesk | AutoCAD |
  • Right Click On( Default) | Modify Binary Data | Change any of the values to any number of character

After the restart you may now install the new version. This should work for you.

Regards

Rose
