2.55. "FLEXnet returned error code –20"

Applies to:
Palisade software releases 5.x

Problem:
When I try to open the software, I get the error message

FLEXnet returned error code –20: lc_flexinit failed

Solution:
Most likely you did not have sufficient privilege when running the installer. To resolve the problem, do not uninstall the software but repeat the install as follows:

  1. Make sure you are logged in to Windows as a full administrator.
  2. If you have Windows 7 or Vista, right-click the installer and select Run As Administrator. If you have Windows XP or earlier, double-click the installer.
  3. If the installer prompts you for Modify or Repair, select Repair.
