We run a license for 3dsmax on a windows server.
We were on a 2003 server but have moved to a 2008. This 2008 server also has a licenses for other products such as ArcGIS, IDL, etc...
I got the license setup and installed fine, everything was working fine. I was then working on getting ERDAS setup on the server, while I was working on that I got a call from a user using 3dsMax saying it was working.
When I use the LMTOOLs to check the status and try start the service it says it can not start the server, The server may already be running.
When I start to start the service using the sevices feature in Windows it fails saying:
Windows could not start the 3dsmax service
Eror 1053: The service did not respond to the stort or control request in a timely fasion.
I have uninstalled everything and went through the steps of setting it back up again and it still is giving me the same problem.
Any help would be great.
Make sure all of your licensed products are using the same LMGRD.EXE file and place all the vendor daemons together in one location. Point them all appropriately and start each service individually.
You can check my combining license files link for every possible situation. One will surely work for you. If you have any issues, just let me know.
make sure the file license is a new file,bcoz..windows server 2003 & 2008 is better,try update the LMTOOLS..the windows server 2008 use Ipv6 or Ipv4? last 3week i also got same problem with u.. nid to do little troubleshoot
