Hi,

 

I was originally running PADS 9.X on a Windows 7 64-bit professional computer. That computer's motherboard died this morning and I am unable to use the OEM copy of Windows it came with to recreate my set up. Instead I have purchased a new HP computer from best buy that runs Windows 10 64-bit Home. I have been unable to install the dongle which has a FLEXnet ID-9 identifier. When I try to open Layout or Schematic I get the following error:

 

 

The following FLEXlm errors were found:

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

The hostid of this system does not match the hostid

specified in the license file.

or contact your software provider for a license file.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
