      This started occurring right after I upgraded my desktop to 2012.

      The web page referenced above does not exist for me.


      I had our IT department to update the license manager but it still does not work.

      What is next to check?


      There is not a log file in C:\Users\dnicholas\Documents\SW Log Files

      I am running solidworks premium.


      I have attached a file of the license borrowing tab of the license manager and it shows that i have 2 standard lic with 0 available.

      There currently is not anyone using the software.
