Solved! Go to Solution.
The first thing I would try is running a repair. If that doesn't work for you, you may need to initiate the secondary installer to resolve the problem...
This process will set all of your settings to default and any customizations done will be lost, so you should probably create a backup...
To initiate the secondary installer, follow these steps:
Within Windows Explorer, delete/rename the following folders:
Go into the registry editor and delete the following:
Once these folders are deleted (or backed up) start the application again.
I wish I would've found this before typing everything above. Use this link for more information:
I agree with DarrenP. Server 2008 R2 is not a supported operating system and in fact may violate your End User License Agreement.
The issue was that I was getting errors running the application on the server and thought it affected the users on their PCs as well but it did not.
If I tried to run anything except Autocad classic on the server it would error and I thought that was an issue.
I was mistaken.. as long as the License Server is working and running and serving up the 5 licenses, all is good from the user side.
I turned off the old server and the 5 users are up and running and working with no errors.
As I have never touched Autocad before, that probably was the biggest issue.
So the important thing for the future is that on the server, make sure you are running the latest 64bit version of License Manager, disable IPv6 with the MS patch and then reboot and make sure FlexLM is running as a service and once that works, config License Manager and make sure users can run Autocad on their desktops without any errors or nagging for license.
Correct. Autodesk applications themselves do not need to be installed or run on the server for this to work. You only need to install the NLM on the server and the applications on the clients pointing to the NLM server.
Thanks for the update.
