Can't start artwork daemon on WindowsWhen trying to start the Flexlm license manager on Windows, the artwork.exe daemon remains down and you get the following error message.
#Flexible License Manager status on Tue 11/11/2003 09:20 [Detecting lmgrd processes...] License server status: 1501@hera License file(s) on hera: C:\artwork\license.dat: hera: license server UP (MASTER) v8.1 Vendor daemon status (on hera): artwork: The desired vendor daemon is down. (-97,121)
We found that FLEXlm always creates a lock file called "C:\flexlm\artwork" when you start
our vendor daemon, even if your license server is in a different directory.
If you create a directory called C:\flexlm\artwork , the server would start up and try to create the lock
file, but it couldn't because there is already a directory with that name.
The solution is to rename the directory, and restart the server
