First of all, most users have Microsoft Word 2010 and AutoCAD 2015 installed on their computer and we have not had any reports of the following issue when launching a non Autodesk product and getting this progress window to come up...
Please check out the following knowledge article to find out what caused the issue;
We are receiving few cases where customers have problems running our 2015 network versions and The Foundry software (e.g. Nuke). If you have installed License Manager 11.12 for the 2015 products (e.g. Maya) on a server that is already hosting the license server for The Foundry products, you may also experience these issues. The Foundry products currently use a different version of the License Manager (10.8). In some cases, launching both services prevents one of them to run correctly and therefore licenses for that services are not available.
The cause we identified in collaboration with The Foundry Support Team (thanks Jake) is likely because both services use by default the same TCP port that is 27000. This can generate a conflict and results in one of the services to shut down or not start at all.
It is possible to avoid or prevent this to happen simply changing the default port used by one of the services. You can do this adding the port to the first line of the license file:
SERVER <SERVER_HOSTNAME> <ETHERNET ADDRESS> <PORT>
Example: SERVER MyServer 000000000000 27001
Note: if on any clients you are using pointers to specify the license server, you may need to also change or add the port there.
It is true that most answers are already out there but sometimes you need to do it yourself. In this case, the request was to disable the Welcome Screen. That is easy, there is a check box when creating a deployment.
Project Falcon is a free technology preview that simulates airflow around object “Project falcon”.
If you try to install the version for Inventor 2013, you will notice that the add-on is not made available and if you previously already downloaded the 2013 add-on version you will encounter a “Falcon For Inventor expired” error message.
This is due to the fact that the 2013 version has a “time bomb” in it, which has now run out.
To use it in conjunction with your Autodesk Inventor files, you will have to export a STL file from inventor and then load the STL file in to the stand-alone “Microsoft Windows Standalone Application” program.
Thank you to Scott Sheppard for helping clarifying the situation.
Sometimes a bit of luck is involved in solving a problem. Error messages are good but sometimes, the error message may NOT correct. In this case, the license server was setup correctly with a Autodesk T1 license and AutoCAD Map 3D 2012 was not launching. There was a -5 error.
Based off this technical solution, a -5 error means that there No such feature exists on the server.
"When I try to open Civil 3D 2014 I get a fatal error: Unhandled access violation writing 0x006c exception at f3256d5ah." These numbers may vary.
If you see such an error you may want to check a few things before you decide to reinstall. Likely the issue may be with the graphic drivers as this problem is often caused by an incompatible driver installed on your machine.
We have a lot of blog posts that deal with licensing Moldflow Design Link 2013. In this episode, we have confirmed that Design Link licenses are valid and working on the license server. When you launch it and try to import or process a 3rd party file into Moldflow, you get a Design Link licensing error.
Option 1: Download and Install Moldflow 2014 because Design Link is free.
Option 3: Confirm that you have a special Design Link (Paid) version installed.
"Pre-Moldflow 2014, we offered a “free component [Design Link]” with the core product install if you were working with other Autodesk products, but it is the “paid component” that allows you to import other CAD formats that needs to be installed."
