View Full Version : Flexlm Windows license finder - Error in saving configuration settings

05-22-2006, 11:50 AM
If no environment variable is set and no registry entry exists on the Windows platform, the FlexLM License Finder is invoked. On my system, after I supply a valid server name (port@host) or license file path, I get an error dialog box that says "Error in saving configuration settings". The tool then comes up, but indeed the next time I invoke, the license is again not found.

I seem to remember that the "finder" used to fix the problem, presumably by creating a registry entry. The finder never changes the registry, with or without a placetaker entry present. Registry permissions are not a factor.

Lmgrd and vendor daemons were built with Perhaps the vendor has to implement saving the corrected settings in thier application code?

We received the same error. Something in the registry was blocking our saving of the license server information. It could either be a software glitch or Windows security setting gone awry.
