CAD Manager Control Utility not running

Hi all,


I've searched the forums looking for a solution for my issue without any luck. I have the CAD Manager Control Utility installed from the Building Design Suite Premier (ACAD, 3ds max and Revit installed) and when I launch it the software returns the following;


"No Autodesk-based product key in registry. Please use the CAD Manager Control Utility on a computer containing the Autodesk-based product you wish to modify."


I found this link but it seems to be specifically to fix a problem with Civil 2010.


Any ideas for a solution or help would be much appreciated.

Have you actually tried the instructions in that link?  It looks as though it's just xml pointers. Even if it doesn't work, you should be able to modify them to fit your current needs, I would think.

I just installed the utility and am getting the exact same message. This is despite having the Building Design Suite Ultimate installed with a valid serial.


I followed the link in the original post and checked the registry for the presence of the serial numbers and they are there.
