ST10 license server problems


I am having problems with my ST installation after uninstalling ST9 to install ST10. I have done it according to the tutorial:
But I am getting errors when trying to launch ST10. Please see attached image.


We currently have a ST9 SP server running. But this instance of ST10 will be running locally only on one machine. 

This is what my Server Status log in LMTOOLS is showing:

Flexible License Manager status on Tue 9/18/2018 10:32

Hi @Ork




there could be several issues regarding this problem.


First of all, You have to take care about the fact, that for ST10 You must install the FlexLM server software from the ST10 installation image too.


You can not use the older ST9 FlexLM Server software.


Next step would be to check wether or not the FlexLM server service is running locally at the server machine.

Start the "lmtools.exe" from the program folder of the Flex installation.

PS.: I would suggest to use the default folder of "c:\FlexLM"  and not any folder within the programs directory.

There are certain rules of windows which will prevent services writing back certain infos due to write access problems.


How is the server indentitfied?

Via dongle, mac-ID, etc.?


If the service is working problem-free at the server go to the next step, testing wether the server will be found from the client machines.

Here is the antivirus and firewall setting a big issue.


Add the two exe from the flexlm/program folder to the firewall rules

sedemon.exe and lmgrd.exe


And this should make Your server working fine!
