I spent an added day reading through my other programs literature to make sure this would not affedt my pipeline. Then I followed the instructions to delete the files inside the Flexnet folder. (First I stopped the service.) Watching this folder during Max start up new entries were created and there was Max,
Incidently you can see the hidden file from xplorer by view and check unhid (hidden),
Thanks most graciously.
