    User/host on EXCLUDE list for feature. (-38,147,0)

    Steven Gilmore

      I'm a student at UF using their VPN to use the solidworks education edition on my macbook pro.

      I have installed parallels 6 with windows 7 and while logged onto the UF VPN, I try to open solidworks and I get an error while its starting up. The error is "Could not obtain a license for SolidWorks Standard. User/host on EXCLUDE list for feature. (-38,147,0)"

      I tried googling the error and came up with nothing. I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling, disabling firewalls, updating, checking the license manager/server settings and nothing has worked.

      I am also running a bootcamp partition of windows 7 on my MBP and when I install solidworks on that/log into the VPN, the program launches successfully and runs smoothly.


      Is there anything else I can troubleshoot to get solidworks to work on my parallels partition?


      Any help is greatly appreciated.
