  1. ERROR: Invalid Machine Name

    Hello, I recently intalled a new motherboard, and am unable to re-install my apprentice license. I tried doing this: Sometimes the SERVER key may become invalid if you change the computer name or upgrade your hardware. Changing the computer name is not advisable unless all the licenses have been returned. Most common reason for invalid SERVER key, then, is hardare upgrade that changes the server code (server id). To install a new valid SERVER key for your computer, please follow these steps: Open the License Administrator (hkey) Select File -> Install Licenses Log in In the dialog box click on the "Licenses" tab Select the checkbox to reinstall the SERVER key Press Install button This should reinstall the new SERVER key for your computer. My computer's name hasn't changed, and unfortunately for me, both "install licenses" and "manually enter keys" are greyed out (unselectable). I've alos tried deleting evey houdini file I can find, and reinstalling, but somehow the problem still persists. there's got to be a hidden file somewhere... I should note, I'm running 12.5.427 on CentOS 6.4 w/apprentice licensing Thanks!
