Problem of connection to the flexlmserver


    • omajo

      Hello, I have a problem with
      a customer.  
      he wishes to open a file by double clicking on it. (.scdoc)
      he has no problem to open a file from a 
      another way.

      you can see the error message on the 

      attached file 

      or below 



      Could not connect to any license server.

      Please use ANSLIC_ADMIN to setup your license server.

      Hello olivier. majo

      Check out the below article to have scdoc files open with double click. Though it talks about other file formats, it's applicable for scdoc files too.

      Hello Naresh, 

      i found this kind of path like the exemple below :


      not in the folder : HKEY_USERS but in the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT

      OrdinateurHKEY_CLASSES_ROOTANSYS 2019 R2 .scdoc FileShellopencommand

      so I did the action in this folder,with no result. 

      do i have to do another action ?

      Hello olivier. majo

      I think the path is fine. YOu need to add a couple more arguments to the key value. 

      The registry key value should be set to the following:

      "C:Program FilesANSYS Incv195scdmspaceclaim.exe" "%1" "/USERUNNINGSPACECLAIM=true" /UseLicenseMode=true

      /UseLicenseMode=true is necessary to make Discovery SpaceClaim look for the subscription license.  Without that set it will look for a floating license, which is why you get the error in the image you submitted.
