Can I use the WF 2.0 license server install on Win7

I'm trying to move an old license to a new server. Got a new license file and ran the WF2.0 PTC install from the old disk for the license server. It seemed to go OK but it won't allow the server to start. The license pieces don't generate any errors - but when it finishes it says couldn't start license server and it points to a .log file that is supposed to be down in the flex directory but it isn't there.

Does this old installer not support Win7? Where would I get a newer one?

Thanks

-Dan

Try turning off the firewall on the system and see if that lets you start the license server.

There are some additional trouble shooting tips at the end of this presentation.

I turned off the Firewall - that didn't help

I changed the folder number for the NIC via regedit - it was at 8... changed it to 1 & rebooted still doesn't start.

The status says it's been changed (see below) - I don't think I did that. I downloaded it as they mailed it to the machine. I might have opened it with WordPad or something.

Thanks for the help so far,
