  1. How to resolve the issue “VD is starting, please check vendor daemon’s status in debug log” while Start/Stop/Reread.

  2. I cant LMSTOOLs doesnt start / I get the following error:

    license manager: can’t initialize:Invalid license file syntax.

    (lmgrd) License Path: “C:\Autodesk\Network License Manager\lic.dat”

    (lmgrd) FlexNet Licensing error:-2,40027

    What am I doing wrong?

    1. I am having the exact same issue, it appears something is wrong with the “host name” or possibly “MAC address” in our license file. However, I typed these in just fine.

      Can I ask where you found your LIC.DAT file? I did not have this file when I downloaded the archive, the only thing I have that resembles a license is a “License.LIC” file. Nothing at all called “LIC.DAT”

  3. Muy agradecida!
    Super claro y detallado el video. Funcionó siguiendo el paso a paso.
    Lo único que me costó fue encontrar en la página el botón de descarga de carpeta. Gracias de verdad!!!!!!
