I have noticed that when using Autodesk Network License Manager 11.12, you may need to customize OUR license files to use the non default licensing ports.
For example, when configuring Autodesk licensing service with Foundry, ArcGIS or CamWorks, you will need to edit our license files to use a differnet port for lmgrd.exe. i.e. 27000 (default) to 27001
A sample is below:
SERVER TOR2UA13809X0 3CD92B5B4B2E 27001
VENDOR adskflex port=2080
For ArcGIS, you also need to use the 32 bit version of the Autodesk Network License Manager.
Finally, if you are using Autodesk and Abaqus software in your company, you will need to even customize the adskflex.exe port (2080) in our license file because of the following conflict:
We recently found out that Avaya software uses Flexera software for licensing and it's also 32 bit. It's is best to use the Autodesk licensing software as 32 bit so that you can see the settings for both services and customize Autodesk products to use port 27001.

When running AutoCAD 2015, one of the systems would have some display issues. It would leave image trails and the performance is very slow with hardware acceleration ON.
The solution was to use a beta driver from Nvidia:

Here is an interesting problem, we recently got this into Product Support:
Where is Revit 2015? It is not in the list because the installation is on a 32 bit operating system. The system requirements for Revit and the Building Design Suite Premium are noted below:
Building Design Suite Premium 2015
It is similar to this issue with Revit 2015 not installing on Windows 7. Please review the blog post below for more details:
