license server exits < 1/2 second after starting

Modelsim PE 10.2a, Windows 7, USB dongle. Installed today. Other people in the office use it successfully.


When I run Modelsim it says, "Unable to check out a license. Run the Modelsim Licensing Wizard from the Start -> Programs menu to diagnose the problem". And then exits.


When I start the Licensing Wizard it exits immediately. A screen (looks like maybe a DOS screen) flashes up extremely quickly, like for half a second or less, then disappears. Unfortunately it happens so quickly that I've no idea what the cause is.


Since I can't run the License Server, I can't run Modelsim. I'm stuck. Any suggestions?
