After purchasing ACAD LT 2011 and operating for several months, I have a problem whith launching the software.  I get a "Licensing Error" dialogue box that says "Unable to initialize adlm".  Also the internal error message reads <service not installed.  Error Code: <20>.  Has anybody had any experience with this?

For more detailed information about the CascadeInfo.cas file, please refer to the Autodesk Support Knowledge Base article found here:

For stand-alone activations, backup and delete file .data and .backup license files located in C:\ProgramData\FlexNET\ and try again.  You will likely have to reactivate.
