Solidworks 2008 - could not obtain a licence for solidworks

Hi,

 

I'm currently working as deskop support trying to install Solidworks 2008. I've installed this on other machines and it installs fine but this time I encounteed an error:-

 

could not obtain a licence for solidworks. Cannot connect to licenceserver (-15,10,10061)

 

We use an authentification server brnas03 port 25734 to authenticate solidworks licences.


I've tried going into Solidnetwork Licence Administrator to manually configure settings but it defaults to 7585@brnas03 which should be 25734@brnas03. I've tried to remove 7585 and add 25734 but the setting will not save. can anybody offer some advise on how to get around this. is there a registry key i can edit?
