Problems pulling licenses with a combined AEC and perpetual license.

You are here:
< All Topics


After configuring your license manager to reflect a new license file with AEC and perpetual licenses user’s start reporting that they can’t connect to the server or get the  dialog box message:

A valid license could not be obtained by the network license manager.
If you are still unable to access a license, contact your system administrator.
Error [-4.132.0]

Most often this is caused by all of the licenses being consumed.  Perform a status enquiry to see if there are licenses available.  This can also happen if there is a problem with accessing the license manager


  1. Go to Windows Control Panel > System and Security > System.
  2. Select Advanced system settings.
  3. On the System Properties dialog, click Environment Variables.
  4. Under System variables, click New.
  5. For Variable Name, enter ADSKFLEX_LICENSE_FILE.
  6. For Variable Value, enter 27000@servername

This also has been resolved by using the vendor daemon port 2080.
