Evenin' Travis -
Did you ever get the solution? I have the same problem, but haven't found the answer. So far removing the cascade.cas file has not been a solution.
Other causes of the 0.0.0 besides the corrupt CascadeInfo.cas file are:
1. You don't have the right license file or the NLM is not functing properly - Check that your NLM is running and that your licenses are available. Check the debug.log for any errors on the server
2. The date and time are not in sync between the client and the server. Please make sure everything matches, including daylight savings time.
For more detailed information about the CascadeInfo.cas file, please refer to the Autodesk Support Knowledge Base article found here:
I have an archaic version of both Inventor and Mech Desktop I purchased in 2002. Now using Windows 7 and having recently decided to retire from the workforce where I last used Inv/Autocad 2013, I have no need for bells/whistles that can't be done by the older version of R6.
My suite came w 2 discs. Mech Desktop prompt asked for an authorization code that I typed in. I was successful in opening and using Mech Desktop.
Loading Inventor first, though, DID NOT prompt for an authorization code. I called locally and in turned was transferred to the 800-551-1490 authorization department and was told my version is at a current level and I have authorization to use this.
HOWEVER, altho I can open Mech Desktop which I never used and disliked years ago, I CAN NOT open Inventor for the immediate prompt is: License could not be obtained. Please contact your Dealer.
Under properties I can prompt that Inv open from anything from Windows 95 to Windows 7. I reset it to be compatable with 2000. That should not affect the opening prompt to consult the dealer.
I have no desire to purchase new software when even this older version could work fine for home projects. yet I have not found one person yet to assist with suggesting what to do for my correcting my load on problem. I can not see buying additional software either.
Is there a solution? What can I do to bypass teh License could not be obtained message?
We just ran into this problem (We had older versions of Revit pulling a license fine, but 2015 would not.) and Kyle Davis of CTC told me to try this, and it worked:
On the license server, open LMTools.
on the "Service/License File" tab, check the box at the bottom that says "LMTOOLS ignores license file path environment variables".
I can vouch that you are correct. I had a customer last week with this issue. It was caused by there being more than one license manager installed and LMTOOLS was pulling from the other one. Additionally, 0.0.0 for 2015 is typically caused by the license manager needing to be upgraded to 11.12 first.
