I am running Autodesk Education Master Suite 2012 and FLEXnet 11.9 on my license server.
I have set a max of 30 days in my adskflex.opt options file when they borrow an autocad license. When a user does the borrow, if he chooses a date within the 30 days it works, if he goes over the 30 days it will not work.
The issue is that in the area of "Choose within valid date range", it displays a date within 6 months, which seems like the BORROW=4320 indicated in the license file. It works like it is supposed to, but it does not display the correct date. Does anybody know if this can be corrected with this license file or do I need to get a new license file? It is causing confusion when the users borrow the licenses. I think it worked until I got the latest license file.
Your description seems unclear. If you set the limit to 30 days, then any date they choose in the calendar will be invalid after the 30 day range. What is your exact issue?
I have attached a picture of the borrow screen the users get. The problem is that it does not display the correct "valid date range" It is just what is displayed that is wrong, it works like it is supposed to.
Because it displays the wrong date, the users try to borrow it for longer than 30 days because the system tells them they can borrow it until october 21(6 months), but it will not work if the date is longer than 30 days.
The options file won't change the application programming. It will simply just not allow a license borrow past the 30 days you specify. The user will get an error. This is normal and by design. Thus I would expect if the user picks a calendar date within 30 days, it will borrow. If the user chooses past 30 days, it will not work. This is how it is supposed to work. Just tell the users that the limit is 30 days and that should suffice.
