Help! Unable to obtain license for creo schematics 2.0

I have a full license the entire suite, all software work well. I think when I start schematics 2.0 says: unable to obtain license for Creo schematics. I just think schematics 3.0 works, but I need the 2.0.

Ronny,

Try using server IP address in PSF instead of server name (replace RATENCI0 with server IP)

Ronny,

Creo Schematic has its own separate license named CREOSCHEM_License (or something similar). Check the contents of your license file.

Hello,

I have a full license, and review.

3.0 Schematics think if it works, but 2.0 does not.

Ronny,

check the contents of <Schematics_loadpoint>\Creo 2.0\Schematics\bin\schematics.psf file.

The file contains two lines:

ENV=PTC_D_LICENSE_FILE-=LICENSE_PATH

ENV=CREOSCHEM_FEATURE_NAME=CREOSCHEM_License ()

Check both lines.

Ronny,

login at RATENCIO computer and run ptcstatus.bat to see available licenses.

Run ptcstatus.bat on your workstation, too, and compare outpu listings.

Maybe the quickiest way is to uninstall/install Creo Scematics 2.0 ...

The first thing I did was reinstall (Creo-S 2.0).

Here's all good.

Ronny,

I installed Creo Schematics 2.0 M020 from standalone installation media and it works well on my PC.

I am sorry I don't have any other tip...

Then I guess I'll have to completely uninstall the entire suite. and only install Schematics

Thanks you very much...

i will keep you informed

something important is: I have the license server elements pro 5.0 m260 think. perhaps it can be important.

I am using Creo elements pro 5.0 m190. No problem.

Part of the problem is that when I start Esimulate, selecting think Schem 3.0, then the window opens normally but on the tab above the application of Esimulate should appear, but do not appear.

If you have correct license file and still can't run Schematics 2.0 try this:

  1. Go to C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc folder (etc folder is hidden, btw).
  2. Edit hosts file in etc folder and remember, that if you want to write anything to system folder you need to run editing software, like notepad as an administrator, otherwise you won't be able to save modified file.
  3. Add line in the hosts file

127.0.0.1 <your_machine_name> (there is a space between IP address and machine name)

Save hosts file and exit. It should work then.

What you're doing that way is simply tell the license mechanism that a computer with IP 127.0.0.1 (it's a loopback IP for localhost) have also a name <machine_name>. Thanks to that information Schematics will look for the license in the license server running on your local machine.
