License Server Reset

If problems with the License Server or activated licenses occur, you may have to reset the License Server. All details about activated licenses on the License Server are compiled in files that start with "taclic" and have the .data extension. The file name string after "taclic" can differ. An example of the License Server file name is The license details files are created the first time a license is activated on the License Server. By deleting the files you reset the License Server.

The license files are located in the following locations:

  • Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10: \ProgramData\FLEXnet

  • Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2012: \ProgramData\FLEXnet

Before deleting the License Server files, you have to return all activated network licenses to the License Activation Server.

  • If you delete the License Server files, all activated network licenses are lost.
