This is a very common error that could be caused by a variety of different things. Please try the below in order:

For Personal or Free Trial Licenses:

Step 1 Activate the License
Make sure you have activated your product key. To do this please follow the Personal / Evaluation activation instructions.

If the license is activated, please proceed to Step 2.

Step 2 Update Runtime
In the majority of cases this error is caused by an old runtime, and can easily be resolved as follows:

Please download and re-install the latest version of the licensing runtime: https://www.rocscience.com/dow...

Please run the installer with administrative privilege (right click the file >> run as administrator).

When re-installing, please disable any antivirus or security software on your computer. Also, add the below exceptions to your security software to allow the licensing runtime to operate. Once installed, re-enable the security software.

Here is a list of locations that you should add to your exceptions or whitelist:
• C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Aladdin Shared\HASP
• C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\SafeNet Sentinel\Sentinel LDK
• C:\Program Files (x86)\Rocscience
• C:\Program Files\Rocscience
• C:\Windows\System32\hasplms.exe

Once reinstalled, please re-boot your machine.

For Flexible Licenses:

Step 1 Update Runtime
Having an old runtime on the server or client, might result in license unavailability, or software related issues. Please make sure you have an updated runtime on both sides, client and server.

Note: Make sure that no other programs are using the same runtime (Sentinel LDK license manager), as updating it might affect other software functionality.

Please download and re-install the latest version of the licensing runtime: https://www.rocscience.com/dow...

Please run the installer with administrative privilege (right click the file >> run as administrator).

• C:\Program Files\Rocscience
• C:\Windows\System32\hasplms.exe

Once reinstalled, please re-boot your machine.

If you continue to see the error, please proceed to Step 2.

Step 2 Verify Client Configuration
The client might not be pointing on the right server, due to a setting change on either the server or the client. Please make sure that the client is pointing at the right server's IP address and that the below is checked:

  1. Please navigate to http://localhost:1947/_int_/config_to.html on client machine.
  2. Once there, make sure that all three boxes (Allow Access to Remote Licenses, Broadcast Search for Remote Licenses, Aggressive Search for Remote Licenses) are checked.

  4. Try to run the program.

If you continue to see the error, please proceed to Step 3.

Step 3 Ensure Port 1947 is Open
Please make sure that port 1947 is always open for communication between server and client. It should be enabled for both inbound and outbound connections, over TCP&UDP for the license exchange.

What kind of firewall application or hardware are you using? If it is just Windows Defender Firewall, then below are the instructions for it, otherwise consult the documents that came with your firewall.

To open the port on client or server, please go to “Windows Defender Firewall”>>”Advanced settings”.

  1. Select Inbound Rules (Left panel)
  2. Add new rule (Right panel)
  3. Select port >> next

  5. allow all connections” >> next.
  6. Select all check boxes, local, domain and private>> Next
  7. Type Rocscience in the box> next.
  8. Repeat the same steps for UDP starting from point 2.
  9. Then repeat All steps for outbound rules, TCP/UDP.
  10. Wait a couple minutes then run the program on the client machine.
