From the desktop... I have my license server setup properly as it works for 2012.
... perhaps I will get a better response when I submit my error log).
Are you trying to install a network version of 2013 or a standalone version?
It is a network version, the same as my 2012. They are on the same server and the 2012 finds the files just fine.
I am getting ready right now to install 2013 once again so I can generate the error log and post it here.
I ran the install again, and this is what it now says. I has done this before so I wont be supprised if it doesn't start again.
I am rebooting now.
If you copied a server deployment to a thumb drive that will not work, there are initialization files pointing to resources & license information in the deployment that point back to the server. The only way this would work is if you had a connection to your work network from home like a Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection.
...oh sorry, didn't mention that I am connecting over VPN and I have setup the proper environmental variables to connect to my license server (thus the reason I am able to startup my network version of 2012 - and previously 2013). As I think I mentioned before, I had installed the same package on my old computer and everything ran fine, from home over vpn.
