Original question:


Good morning experts,

I'm a Design Engineer who plays part-time admin. I have 3 versions of Pro
installed on my PC, 2001, WF and WF2. When I try to start 2001 or WF I get
a license file error message but WF2 will start up. If I go into the setup
of any of the 3 versions, none of the versions show any licenses available
on the license server. This behavior is limited to my PC. I originally
suspected spyware but I have run spybot S&D, ad-aware and shredder but I
still have this problem. I can ping the license server. Any help would be
appreciated.


******************************************************
Summary:

I would like to thank everyone who replied with great ideas.

The majority of the responses suggested license simplification or license
borrowing as the problem.

Unfortunately the culprit was spy-ware. The IT department had to completely
re-build my PC to remove whatever was hi-jacking the port.

Once again I thank everyone for their insightful responses.
