Why does license install fail on Windows XP Home OS which has no ethernet card?

If no ethernet card is installed on a system, the ANSYS FLEXlm Manager returns the Volume Disk ID as FLEXlm Host ID. There is no notification, that this is not an ethernet mac address. It has to be specified during license creation when the key is especially for a Disk Volume ID, so please provide this information to your ANSYS contact. The better tool to get the system information is the "FLEXLM LMTOOLS Utility". Here you get back the information about ethernet host ids and disk volume ids.

If you use the Volume Disk ID for a standard key, the license manager complains, that the hostid of license file and machine are different.
