Unable to Borrow VW2018 SP6 License?


Posted (edited)

We have a fresh install of VW2018 SP6 on Mac OSX High Sierra. It is no different to other computers in our company that can borrow licenses ok. This one, unfortunately, gives an error message when trying to borrow a license - whilst connected directly/locally to our office internal network (same subnet as license server):


'Can't acquire a license from the server for the following modules: Fundamentals, Architect, Renderworks. Your server doesn't support these modules for this copy of Vectoworks or all licenses are in use'.


We have plenty free licenses available. An identical device can borrow a license no problem at all. Same internal license server, same VW serial, etc. The user profile is an administrator of the laptop. Another local user account also gets the same error.


I'm stumped!

A clean install of OSX High Sierra fixed it!
