AutoCAD via Parallels hanging up on "Checking License..." screen

Can anyone help with this?  I am running Parallels 8 on a Mid 2010 iMac.  I am able to install AutoCAD 2014. This is the student version...  When doing its first boot, it gets caught up on "Checking License..." screen.  Not sure how to approach this.  Most of the solutions involve using an actual PC.  

 

Has anyone else had this problem and were able to fix it?

Is there a reason you don't want to use the native MAC version of AutoCAD on your Apple computer?

There are a few features we learned in school that only run in the PC version.  And some of the layout of the program make it easier to work in.  So far, I have been using the Mac version exclusively.
