The Software license check out failed. Error 41

Hi All

I wonder if you can help me, I work for a university we have a 25pk licence running off a licence server, I have one user who has been using Autodesk 3d studio max, i recently tried to install the SDK for this user and since I did this he can no longer open 3D Studio Max and gets the following error.

"The software license check out failed. Error 41."

I have tried a number of fixes, removing the SDK, trying to repair the installation and also renaming the ADLM folder (or whatever it is called) in application data and the user profile.

We are running Vista 64bit and the installation has been working fine. Any help would be appreciated I feel like I am banging my head against a brick wall with this.
