Anyone else have any problems with SW not releasing the network license once you close the program. This happens every time I use the software. Usually having this happen is not a problem, except when our IT department is performing maintenance on the servers. There have been times that I have known that the server will be going down shortly, so I'd like to check-out a license so that I can continue to work. Whenever I have tried to do this, I exit SolidWorks, but it never releases the license that I was just using. If I open SolidNetWork License Manager, it still shows me using a license on my machine. Because it won't release the license, I cannot check one out. So far, right now, it has been 1/2 hour since I closed SolidWorks, and it still shows that I am using a license. Windows task manager doesn't show any other SW process running. If there is a SW process still running, the name and description do not make it apparent that it is a SW component, so I cannot identify it... Only thing I see in the Process list is the SW License Manager, since I have opened that to check out the license. Refreshing or closing and re-opening SW license manager doesn't change the situation either.
I've attached a screen capture of the processes running (in windows task manager).
Anyone have any ideas? It's really frustrating when this happens!
