In prep for the big snow storm tomorrow, I helped a user borrow a solidworks standard and solidworks premium (even though I don't think he'll need any of the premium features,) license. Then to test I disconnected the network connection and ran Solidworks. No dice, I get the same error I would get if I hadn't borrowed the license:
Could not obtain a license for Solidworks Standard
Server node is down or not responding (-96,7,11004)
If I go into the license manager while disconnected it does show the borrowed licenses for Standard and Premium.
