      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.

      Feature:       padsls_c

      Hostid:        FLEXID=9-4XXXXXX

      License path:  c:\mentorgraphics\license_files\license.txt;

      FLEXnet Licensing error:-9,57

      For further information, refer to the FLEXnet Licensing documentation,

      available at "www.acresso.com".

       

       

          Server c:\mentorgraphics\license_files\license.txt: No such feature exists.

      Feature:       pwrshell

      License path:  c:\mentorgraphics\license_files\license.txt;

      FLEXnet Licensing error:-5,357

      For further information, refer to the FLEXnet Licensing documentation,

      available at "www.acresso.com".

       

       

          Server C:\flexlm\license.dat: 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.

      Feature:       pwrshell

      Filename:      C:\flexlm\license.dat

      License path:  C:\flexlm\license.dat;

      FLEXnet Licensing error:-1,359.  System Error: 2 "No such file or directory"

      For further information, refer to the FLEXnet Licensing documentation,

      Does anyone have any suggestions?
