LICENSE: µVISION Hangs With Enabled FlexNet
Information in this knowledgebase article applies to:
We use Keil MDK with a FlexNet License. But whenever I try to
enable the Use Flex option in the License Management Dialog (even if
there is no server address typed in) the software hangs indefinitely.
After shutting down µVision it then also refuses to run again (hangs
on splash screen).
in the TOOLS.INI file, µVision starts normally, but in lite mode.
There is some problem with the FlexNet tools and services on your PC. It is a PC related issue. So for other users with other computers using the same license this usually still works ok in this situation.
Please check, if one of the following options helps.
1) 7 day evaluation mode was used on that machine
C:\Keil\UV4\FlexNet\uninstallanchorservice.exe armlmd mdk_pro_eval
The Keil-path may needs adaption to your installation directory. Try staring µVision again with FlexNet enabled.
2) FlexNet license services are running
3) active "Trusted Storage Repository"
HKLM\Software\WOW6432Node\Macrovision\FlexNet Publisher\Trusted Storage Repository\ C:\ProgramData\FLEXnet\armlmd_009bf000_tsf.data
rename/remove this entries from the registry/harddisk and see then what happens when starting µVision with FlexNet enabled.
4) Flex Server not available
