    PADS 9.5 install fails with no license.dat

    stevek

      Failed 9.5 install (no license found for viewdata040), ran Mentor Graphics SSD Test and Install HW Key Driver and it found the dongle. Ran  Mentor_License_Utility and it failed to find the dongle. Removed and reinstalled the driver and it now finds the dongle. Still failed launch with the same error.  Diagnostic report shows C:\flexlm\license.dat does NOT exist.

       

      Ran  Mentor_License_Utility and tried to install license from SupportNet and it did not show a Host ID at my site that matches my dongle.  Downloaded a license.txt from Mentor Authorization Code site which did contain my dongle Host ID number. Still failed launch with the same error.

       

      Ran  Mentor_License_Utility and tried to install license from a file and selected the freshly downloaded license.txt and it reported: "No new licenses were installed and None or not applicable"

       

      No idea what to try next.
