    Hi Lucky,

    I had the same problem and the unique way that i found to solve it was:

    - First change the port number 1055 in your license file to 1056 or any other unused number (to see the used port numbers type in your console windows the command: netstat /a

    - Go to your Server ANSLIC ADMIN Utility and press the "Stop the Ansy, Inc. License Manager"

    - After that, press Specify the License Server Machine. Edit the selected server machine and change the 1055 port number to 1056, close the window.

    - Press "Install the License File" and choose the file that you changed.

    - Press "Start the Ansys, Inc. License Manager" and wait.

    - Finally press the "View Status" and see if its run well without any error.

    Hi Lucky,

    Try to modify the license file in other diretory with other name, example: C:\other diretory\license.txt. Then when the license manager ask for the file, you put this one. The license manager will generate other file named C:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\Shared Files\Licensing\license.dat. Dont forget to erase the original license.dat file in C:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\Shared Files\Licensing\. Normally, this last step is not needed.

    good lucky!

    Re: Ansys 12 license help needed

    Hi :)
    Firstly, I hope that I'm not writing in this thread too late. If yes maybe someone who is trying to solve this error will find it helpful.
    I had the same problem like you though in ansys 14 to solve it I tried plenty of things (changing ports, modifying license in different directories). In my case this error was caused by fact that i have installed ansys 14 and ansys license manager in two different partitions so uploaded license in license manager could not be used by ansys itself.
    To solve this problem you must simply:
    1. Upload your license in license manager (Install the License file)
    2. Go to your license manager directory and copy all the loose files (I mean: license.dat, license.log, license.dat.log...) in Licensing dir (ANSYS Inc\Shared Files\Licensing)
    3. Next go to your ansys 12 dir and paste those files in (ANSYS Inc\Shared Files\Licensing)

    And now everytnig should work smooth and fine

    PS: Presumably, you can copy only license.dat but I've copied all of those loose files .

    Re: Ansys 12 license help needed

    I did all the steps in this thread and when I run "display the license status" it responds with

    "Users of aa_t_i: (Total of 1 license issued; Total of 0 licenses in use)"
