Hi,

 

I recently experienced a strange licensing situation:

     - I installed ModelSim Designer on Windows7 64 bit and (ModelSim Designer is not oficialy supported on Win7 )  . I have a dongle nodelocked license and after I installed the software I used Licensing Wizard to verify the license . Every feature was found , the hostID reported as matched so that I expected no licensing troubles further.

  When I launched ModelSim Designer  the License Note window appeared and followinq messages inside:

 

 

The following FLEXlm errors were found:
     Server D:\MODELTECH\License.txt: Invalid host
  The hostid of this system does not match the hostid
  specified in the license file
Feature:       msimdesigner_c
Hostid:        FLEXID=9-17375ad0
License path:  D:\MODELTECH\License.txt
FLEXlm error:  -9,57.  System Error: 22 ""
For further information, refer to the FLEXlm End User Manual,
available at "www.macrovision.com".

 

Server C:\flexlm\license.dat: Invalid host
  The hostid of this system does not match the hostid
  specified in the license file
Feature:       msimdesigner_c
Hostid:        FLEXID=9-17375ad0
License path:  C:\flexlm\license.dat
FLEXlm error:  -9,57
For further information, refer to the FLEXlm End User Manual,
available at "www.macrovision.com".

 

I double checked the license file and the hostID's match. The license file is correctly pointed. I use the last License Manger software and the dongle is working properly.

 

Have you ever met something similar? Any suggestions for solving it? Could it be un unpredicted behavior due to unsuported platform(Win7 64bit)?On Windows 7 32 bit ModelSim designer crashes invoking preference migration issue.

 

Thanks in advance,

Florin
