I installed FlexLM on W2008R2 and set up our licenses.
When my colleague performed a server status check he received the following error message:
Flexible License Manager status on Wed 12/9/2015 14:13
[Detecting lmgrd processes...]
Error getting status: Cannot find license file.
The license files (or license server system network addresses) attempted are
listed below. Use LM_LICENSE_FILE to use a different license file,
or contact your software provider for a license file.
License path: C:\flexlm\license.dat;
FlexNet Licensing error:-1,359. System Error: 2 "No such file or directory"
For further information, refer to the FlexNet Licensing documentation,
available at "www.flexerasoftware.com".
When I did the same I just got the server status report as expected.
It turned out that my colleague's registry profile contained a key under
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\FLEXlm License Manager
which pointed to "C:\flexlm\license.dat".
I did not have that key in HKEY_CURRENT_USER.
Deleting the key in HKEY_CURRENT_USER solved the issue.
FlexLM - Version v188.8.131.52
