Licensing error 2 (Error writing license file)
When activating a license, Error writing license file (2) is displayed.
The license file can not be (over)written.
Right click the BricsCAD icon and choose Run as administrator.
- Make sure the permissions on following folders are full access for everyone:
on Windows XP:
%SystemDrive%\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Reprise
%SystemDrive%\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Bricsys
- If a license file exists in the Bricsys folder mentioned above, make sure it is not read-only and not opened in some editor.
- Make sure the directory /var/bricsys exists with full write/read access for every BricsCAD user. Normally the BricsCAD installer creates this directory with proper permissions. With Custom installations (for instance using a downloaded archive without installer) it has to be created manually.
- Also, /var/tmp should exist with read/write access when running BricsCAD.
If the "Unable to create license file (). (Error code 2)" or "No rehostable hostid top-level dir. (Error code -148)" errors appear, to activate BricsCAD on Fedora or openSUSE, use this workaround:
Close BricsCAD dialogs > Open terminal > type "sudo chmod -R 777 /var/bricsys" > press Enter > enter password > press Enter > start BricsCAD
- Make sure the permissions on /var/tmp/bricsys give full access for everyone.
- If a license file exists in /var/tmp/bricsys, make sure it is not read-only and not opened in some editor.
