Error when starting ANSLIC_ADMIN as adminstrator to specify license server.

Please see attached image for error upon trying to start up ANSLIC_ADMIN to change the license server. Any thoughts on how to resolve this? workbench won't open up since the license server is not specified (connected to VPN). Computer was restarted.

    @athoeny Could you please open a Windows command prompt and send the full output of the "set" command? This error typically indicates a problem with some environment variable.

    This is possibly due to the PATH variable. Can you please save the current value in a text pad for backup and then modify the current PATH variable to have only these entries?

    C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C: \WINDOWS\System32\Wbem;C: \WINDOWS\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C: \WINDOWS\System32\OpenSSH\


    For guidance on creating an Environment Variable please refer to this link. Instead of NEW you want to select the PATH System variable and Edit.

    @athoeny Can you try specifying your license server with environment variables to see if that gets you up and running? This is an example:

    [email protected]

    [email protected]

    Just modify the "server" and port if needed.
