You need to stop all of the services, then update the license manager with 11.11 version... then restart the service through LMTOOLS...
Here's the link again:
Ok... I'm starting from scratch... I deleted all traces of NLM files and exe's from my server. Uninstalled network license manager via add remove programs. Rebooted.
When i go look into services i still have a "Flexlm Service 1". It is not started.
Should I still have that if everything has been uninstalled?
Win Server 2008 R2 FYI
Yes, because the license manager was probably installed on that machine and all you did was delete the files from the directory without uninstalling from Add/Remove Programs.
Regardless of that service still being there, once you install the updated license manager, enter a new name for the service on the Config Services tab then fill in the other information and click save service. This will avoid using the default (old) FlexLM Service 1 service.
Now I cant get it to work at all even after a reboot....
Here's what I did:
FLEXnet Licensing v188.8.131.52 build 106800 x64_n6 (lmgr.lib), Copyright (c) 1988-2012 Flexera Software LLC. All Rights Reserved.
Here's the same winsock error I keep getting.

For further information, refer to the FLEXnet Licensing documentation,
available at "www.flexerasoftware.com".
It says lmgrd has not been started but there are (2) instances of it in task manager showing.
I'm at a loss here guys. Not sure if there is some sort of registry magic i need to do to do a clean uninstall..
Again thanks for the help eveyrone-
does the license file info match to what the license manager see as far as mac address and server name?
can you try disabling the firewall or allow these ports through?
TCP ports 2080 (for the adskflex vendor daemon)
TCP ports 27000 to 27009 (for the lmgrd master daemon)
Definitely do what Darren recommends. What is your server OS?
Here's a screen shot while i am attempting to open ports up. Everything matches as far as i can tell...
