I have brought my laptop with Plant 3D - 2013 abroad and unfortunatly I FORGOT to borrow a license before I left.
Now, normally I connect to the company SERVER with VPN to get a license (atleast this works fine for Microstation) but with my Autodesk Plant 3D this does not work.
The 'FLEXnet license finder' comes up on start-up and I try to both link to the server and even browse to the license file on the server but it does not accept this and show me the classic license error message. I also try to modify the 'licpath' file without any success.
For some strange reason; Inventor 2013 license is working with the same VPN connection but I neither need or use that program.
Desperatly need some advice how to get a license as I am stuck abroad and not able to work.
