Autodesk Simulation CFD not solving

You get an error message: "The (basic) solver license could not be checked out from the license server".

However the CFD interface works fine.

We found that by adding a licpath.lic file pointing to the license server, we managed to clear this error and the solver then worked fine.

Take a look at this useful link for advise in setting up the licapath.lic file.
