An error that looks like this:

indicates that you have copied a license file for a network license into the licenses folder under your CLC Workbench installation area.

Network licenses are made available using the CLC License Server software. They should not be copied into an area under your Workbench installation.

Assuming you already have the CLC License Server software installed, the general process for installing and upgrading network licenses is:

  1. Install the license in the CLC License Server. 

  2. Remove any old network license files.

  3. Restart the CLC License Server.
