i followed the installationstep and by the step 3 the show me an error  when i entered my accounts information. the wrote "the server remote return an error : unauthorized"

i don´t know wath is  whit it.

We have to create a new on-prem license server (for Creo and Mathcad). Creo Parametric is easy to change: in the start command (.psf) file.

Is there a simple way to change the license server name for Mathcad 15 (ie. a text file that can be edited)?

Or do we need to run mclicense.exe on every computer on which Mathcad 15 is installed?

Does every PC use a floating license for Mathcad?

This no longer works. I have an existing licensed copy of Mathcad 15 and my computer hard drive crashed. I reinstalled the SW, but when I go thru this process I get an error.


"The trial program you are requesting is no longer available. Please visit the software product page on to explore our latest versions."


And so far, this lack of help from PTC is phenomenally BAD.
