Direct Licensing Configuration Client

Direct Licensing Configuration Client

Why needs the start of "Creo Elements/Direct Licensing Configuration Client" needs

long time depening on ports enabled in Creo Elements/Direct Drafting 18.1?

  • Starting the Licensing Configuration Client with only 1 LAN Adapter needs 8seconds
  • Starting it with LAN und Bluetooth Adapter needs 12seconds
  • Starting it with 2x LAN und Bluetooth Adapter needs 15seconds
  • On a notebook having LAN, WLAN, Bluetooth needs the start 1:00minute.

What is the reason that the start needs sometimes such a long time?

The problem is caused by the big amount of COM Ports when bluetooth is on. Each COM port is asked for a security device with a large timout period.

It makes no difference, if the device is activated or deactivated.

I would suggest that COM Ports shoul not be asked for security devices because it makes no sense to bind a portable license to a dongle connected to a com port. Binding the license to a network device is the only meaningful way.

Let have a look at %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\PTC\Licensing\Application (W7). You may delete the MECLCONF.conf file (it will be rebuild automatically).

If you're curious, let have a look to the MECLCONF.conf content.
