I was using DxDesigner + PADS Layout v9.5 in the past and recently upgrading the license to PADS VX1.1.  I did not install the new software yet because I want to finish up the current design before switching new software version.  I was told that the old version software will still work with the new license.  However, when opening the old DxDesigner using the new license file, I got:

 

The following FLEXlm errors were found:

    Server c:\mentorgraphics\license_files\license.txt: 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.

I did check the license file Host ID, which matches with my dongle ID.

 

Any suggestion will be appreciated.
