Re: Problem with Solid edge license

Not sure if this is your issue, but if you are running over a slow network (WAN, VPN), the timeout on the clients for gettng a license is too short and will often give up and post a message stating the license can't be found.  to fix, follow the steps below.

  1. Go to Control Panel, System (or right click on Computer and select "Properties").
  2. Click "Advanced system settings" (may need admin to do this)
  3. Select the "Advanced" tab
  4. Select "Environment Variables"
  5. In the "System variables" section, select the New... button
  6. The variable name will be "FLEXLM_TIMEOUT" and the value will be "3000000".

This will provide Solid Edge with 3 seconds to contact the license server and get a response.  If this does not resolve your issue, then it is probably something else.
