We've recently bought a floating license for CodeWarrior 5.2 for HC12 (Basic edition) I now I have troubles making it work.

I have followed the installation guide and set up FlexLM software on our development server. I've also put license.dat in the CodeWarrior installation folder. However I get the following error:

No valid license key was found for this installation of CodeWarrior Development Studio. Please register your product by following the instructions on the registration card or by contacting license@freescale.com.
License server system does not support this feature.
Feature: Win32_CWIDE_Limited
License path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Freescale\CWS12v5.2\license.dat;
FLEXnet Licensing error:-18,147
For further information, refer to the FLEXnet Licensing documentation,
available at "www.macrovision.com".


I've searched through older posts dealing with the same issue and it looks like sometimes the solution is to change to a fixed, non-floating license. If that's the fastest way to get things functioning, I would like to do that. Otherwise, I need some directions about how to fix this.


Thanks in advance for your answer.
