I am having trouble with my autocad 2012. When i open the software it comes up with the following error message 'The security system (softlock license manager) is not functioning or is improperly installed.' Please help me find a solution to solve this as i have enrolled on a autocad course and i have a deadline to meet.
I have installed the 32 bit version using the dvd that we sent to me.
Im using Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition Version 2002 Service Pack 3.
This is typically a file/folder permissions issue. You need to give full rights permission to the 'everyone' group on the following folder and its files:
On Windows XP:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\FLEXnet
Once the access has been granted to the included adskflex_...data files, it should launch without error.
Right-click on the folder and go to Properties. On the security tab, add 'everyone' to the permissions and give it full rights. Extend it to all files and folders if/when prompted. Click OK.
