    Solidworks 2015-16 standard not finding license on server

    Joan Perry

      Solidworks 2015 cannot find the license. It was working fine then stopped working. Errors given are

      (lmgrd) Starting vendor daemons ...

      13:56:02 (lmgrd) License server manager (lmgrd) startup failed:

      13:56:02 (lmgrd) File not found, SW_D.exe


      License server status: 25734@anselm
          License file(s) on anselm: C:\Program Files (x86)\SolidWorks License Manager\sw_d.lic:

      lmgrd is not running: License server machine is down or not responding.
      See the system administrator about starting the license server system, or
      make sure you're referring to the right host (see LM_LICENSE_FILE).
      License path:  25734@anselm;
      FlexNet Licensing error:-96,491
      For further information, refer to the FlexNet Licensing documentation,

      In lmtools utility it is reading the license file.

      any help is appreciated.
