Trying to install and run Autocad LT 2013. It has been installed via disk and then I click on icon and it gets stuck opening while a pop up box with the text 'Checking License' appears. But it does not go past this. Any thoughts?
Following computer hardware trying to run program on:
Dell Dimension DM061
Intel (R) Core (TM)2 CPU
6300 @ 1.86GHz
1.86 GHz, 3.00 GB of RAM
I apologize for the inconvenience this is causing you. Please close all Autodeks software on the computer.
Rename the following file by adding a .bak extension at the end of the filename.
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\FLEXnet\adskflex_*_tsf.data
Then Re-open AutoCAD LT 2013 software. Let me know the results. The above steps are found on our knowledge base article TS15176093
You can try the following suggestions;
1) close program, disconnect computer from internet/network, then launch the program see if the computer bypasses the checking license screen, and it should prompt you for manual actiavation. If you are prompted for manual activation please contact our Registration and Activation line at 1-800-551-1490.
2) if after disconnecting the computer from the network the same checking license screen comes up but does not go beyond that , please uninstall the software including removing the program folders and regsitry entries as outlined Here then re-install the software with Antivirus turned off.
Let me know the results.
On the first option you can still activate manually by contacting our registration and activation line.
On the second option you can try to re-insall with all connections on and see if it activates after initial launch. Keep us updated.
Try creating a new user profile on your Windows XP computer, and launch the software underthis new profile and let us know the results. Reference is This blog post.
Aftger you create a new user and give it administrator permissions, you log into computer with this new test account and you will be able to see AutoCAD LT icon either on the desktop or under programs, Autodesk, AutoCAD LT 2013. You can launch it from there, let me know the results. Thank You.
