Simulation add-in not working

I have recently upograded from our previous version of SolidWorks to SolidWorks 2010. I have it installed on the server with the dongle connected. I also have the license file imported. When I open the License Tool all the licenses are available for SImulation etc. But when I attempt to add them in on the client machine runing SolidWorks it gives me an authentication failure. Why would it say they are all available and then not grant them? The only thing that I changed in the license file was the Hostname of the machine since we have retired the previous server that ran the older version of SolidWorks.


Let me know if there is something else I need to do with the license file. Or if there are some steps that I should take to figure out whats going wrong.


Thank You,
