Deleting CASCADEINFO.CAS solved my problem completely.
I was having trouble starting Inventor 2010 (not starting, just started as a process for a couple of seconds) and AutoCAD Mechanical 2010 (server license error).
You saved me for re-installing Windows (which was the only solution I came up with when having this problem last time).
Just to elaborate, the -4 error means that you were out of licenses on your NLM server. Freeing up a license by having someone else close their application or return their borrowed license will resolve this temporary issue. Deleting the CascadeInfo.cas file will work, however, if for some reason the cascading of licenses are not working when you are out of one feature and it cannot cascade to another available license.

The problem I was having did not have to do with available licenses. There were two licenses available, and the workstation next to mine was able to open and close revit with no error.
Further, I was able to use revit last week with no problems.
When I deleted the .cas file, the error went away.
Yes, which is why I clarified the difference between the standard -4 licenses exceeded error vs. the cascade issue. Thanks.

I have this error -4.132.0 comes up when I launch REVIT 2012 and ACAD 2012. I looked for the .cas file in the directory but did not find it. Can anyone please provide information on how to resolve this error.
