Re: 3ds Max 2011 "Software License Checkout Failed Error 20"

I've tried messing around with the FLEXnet garbage and I can't seem to rid of this "error 20" that keeps popping up. I've tried with FLEXnet enabled, and I've tried with it disabled, either way I still get the error. *Also I no longer have my product code to reinstall max since I'm stupid, so is there a way I can fix this without having to purchase a 2nd copy?*

Make sure you give Everyone full rights to the following folders/files:

 

C:\ProgramData\FLEXnet\adskflex_*.data

C:\ProgramData\FLEXnet\adskflex_*.data.backup

Re: SOLUCION to "Software License Checkout Failed Error 20"

I got this error after I tried to install the Adobe CS4 demo, it puts a file in that flex directory which must confuse

3ds max. Never got the demo running either.

Hi,

 

Thanks for the solution.

It worked for me in 3ds Max 2012. The Flexnet license services were stopped permanently. I just restarted & assigned to Start automatically.

 

Thus its working fine now !

 

Thanks !!

Delete "C:\ProgramData\FLEXnet\adskflex_00691b00_tsf.data" it will solve the problem

I did the same as _AKS_ just said, simply deleting both C:\ProgramData\FLEXnet\adskflex_00691b00_tsf.data and C:\ProgramData\FLEXnet\adskflex_00691b00_tsf.data_backup.001 and reloading 3ds Max, then when it loads it recreates the files and the server, this was for 3DS Max 2012 though
