How can I reset my licencing preferences ? (I changed licence manager run mode and I can’t revert)

    • tahagunaydin

      So I had this issue where I couldn't use any of the products due to really poor connection via VPN (I was using my university's licence) and I came up with a solution on this forum where it said that changing the licence manager run mode to without flexnet and doing some stuff after the problem could be solved. I did it. It was solved, until I restarted my computer to see that it no longer worked. Now I can't change my settings to the default ones because I do not know the path of licence file to install. Can you please help me find that directory ? I could, uninstall everything and then reinstall everything back to get to the default settings but I do not have wi-fi and I do not want to use all of cellular network. Thank you in advance ! I have put a screenshot where that mysterious directory is asked.
