indication software

Has anyone developed a piece of software that might sit in your tray and
tell you if licences are available? it would be a lot better than the not so
graceful error filled startup of acad when no licences are available.

Nice idea Nick...Perhaps if that were not available we could persuade Adesk
to simply have the error messages explain _exactly_ what's wrong (i.e. "no
licenses currently available" or "no hardware lock found") rather than the
big, scary, cover-all-bases FATAL ERROR nonsense it currently displays.

I'm sensing sarcasm here. When there is no licences available, ACAD should
stop loading instead of continuing to try to load after indicating no
licences available.
Thanks for your comments Gary, useless but entertaining

Hi All,

AutoCAD 2000 and 2000i do provide more verbose license messages when the
information is available. The problem is that AutoCAD may search multiple
license servers for a license, there are times the reason a license was not
found is unknown by the application.
