Unable to Setup the Machine as a License Server


While trying to setup the machine as a license server you receive one of the following error messages

  1. “Unable to setup the machine as a license server.”
  2. “Error in setting up the License Server (24216)”

Probable Resolution:

The License Administrator needs to be run using the right-click and “Run as Administrator” option, otherwise it doesn’t have sufficient permissions to implement the desired settings modification. This is due to a Microsoft Windows security feature designed to mitigate malware installations.
