Upgrading to Windows XP Service Pack 2 Causes License Problems

This problem is caused by the Windows XP firewall software on the license server. Prior to Service Pack 2, the firewall was turned off by default. But after installing Service Pack 2, the firewall is turned on by default. The initial settings of the firewall are set to block the communication between your local client machine and the FLEXlm license server. This means you will not be able to get a license without configuring the firewall. Resolution

1. Open up Control Panel.
2. In the Control Panel window, select Security Center and then Windows Firewall.
3. From Windows Firewall, select the Exceptions tab.
4. Under Exceptions, choose the Add Program button and then browse for lmgrd.exe in the Fluent.Inclicensentx86 directory.
Do the same for the file Fluentlm.exe.
5. Then choose "Add Program"
