Re: Failed to initiate trial activation

I have the exact problem after I installed the latest update from IS.
May I know if there are any updates to this issue?

Re: Failed to initiate trial activation

Having the same problem on a different version.

Had been running on Win7x64 with concurrent license of IS Premier 2013. Upgraded FlexNet license server; applied new license for IS Professional 2014. Uninstalled product. Installed IS Professional 2014 SP1. Launch IS. Error message, "The product license has been corrupted. You must repair the license before you can continue. Click yes to repair now." Repairing indicates success, but every start of IS still generates same message.

Other installations on identically configured PCs work, so I know the process works. Have confirmed that there is a license available.

I never get to the place where I need to specify where the license server is.

Has there been any success here?

Resolved!

Finally figured it out!

In the \Program Files (x86)\InstallShield\2014\System\ folder (2014 is the product version), there is a program called TSConfig.exe. Run this with the /set_license_server switch. Then you can either apply your node-lock license or configure the location of your FlexNet license server for concurrent license usage using the Wizard.

Example:
C:\Program Files (x86)\InstallShield\2014\System>tsconfig /set_license_server


Hope this can help someone out!
