Q100051: Floating license install fails: "The license string has an incorrect system ID"


Floating license install on the license server fails: "The license string has an incorrect system ID"


A different machine's system ID was submitted to The Foundry to encode the license key. It is not the system ID of the machine where the license install attempt is failing.


You can only install the license on the machine for which the license was encoded. Did you successfully install the license there ? 

If so, then send Support a diagnostic from it.

You should not attempt to install the floating license on any client-side machines. It is only to be installed on the machine that will act as license server.

Floating licenses start line 2 with the word "ISV" or "VENDOR".
