Big problem hoping some might have some ideas! I have been running a cracked version of artioscad 7.6 at work for a few years now. Recently it stopped opening and I get the error about the license manager is shutdown or initializing (something along those lines). So after poking around it turns out the norton securities they have setup started blocking this file from initializing at startup "FNPLicensingService.exe"
"Anti-spyware Maximum Protection:Prevent installation of new CLSIDs, APPIDs and TYPELIBs Action blocked"
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Macrovision Shared\FLEXnet Publisher\FNPLicensingService.exe
I actually remember this happening before when I first installed it a few years back but I think I was able to add this to the exceptions list. However now any changes I make revert back once I restart so apparently locked by the admin.
Any ideas?? Is there a way to install Artios so its a stand al program without the license service stuff running in the background?
