Hello,nDoes the error still have those strange characters or is it cleared up? If the characters are still weird, can you delete the ansyslmd.ini file? Then open up the Client ANSLIC_ADMIN Utility ( run as admin ) and Specify a License Machine Server. Type in the same server information and the utility will create another one. We want to see if the strange characters reappear.nAlso can you check your environment variables too? You might have one called ANSYSLMD_LICENSE_FILE, if you do, delete this and add it gain.nAlso the services should only be present for the license manager. Is that the same machine?n
