when i type mwcc pq.c -o pq


I get

Warning : Environment varibale 'MWCIncludes' not found

Warning : Environment variable 'MWLibraries' not found

     Error : License check fialed: No such feature exists

                Feature:        MacOS_Plugins_MacOSX_Limited

                License path: /Volumes/CW Tools 10.0/Metrowerks CodeWarrior 10.0/

                Metrowerks -


                FLEXlm error: -5,357

                For further information, refer to the FLEXlm End User Manual,

The second time round having installed the license file, I received by e-mail, something like this came up


mwcc pq.c -o pq

Warning : Environment variable 'MWCIncludes' not found

Warning : Environment variable 'MWLibraries' not found

   Error : the file 'stdio.h' cannot be opened

pq.c line 1    #include <stdio.h>

   Error : the file 'math.h' cannot be opened

pq.c line 2    #include <math.h>



Checking out diverse discussions, someone mentioned that this would be a licensing problem. How do I solve this and get MWCW to work again?? Your help would be greatly appreciated.
