AutoCad authentication conflict with Logmein

On the current release of AutoCad and the past several releases there has been an issue while trying to authenticate AutoCad subscription.  You get an error:  

Error: "The License manager is not functioning or is improperly installed" on systems with LogMeIn installed

 

AutoDesk has found this to be an issue between itself and Logmein.  The patch is to disable Logmein, license Autocad, then reenable Logmein.  While this works it is a pain.  If you want to license Autocad while remote you cannot.  Because, of course, you have disabled Logmein.  

See more about it from AutoDesk here:  https://knowledge.autodesk.com/search-result/caas/sfdcarticles/sfdcarticles/Error-The-License-manage...

Re: AutoCad authentication conflict with Logmein

Hey Randall,

I have asked around but we don't have any idea what AutoCAD needs to finish its registration, so therefore it's hard to say where the conflict is exactly...

Re: AutoCad authentication conflict with Logmein

Hmm, well Autodesk has it documented on their site of the issue and how to work around it.

Maybe contact AutoDesk and the two of you work on this?  I put the issue completely on AutoDesk myself.  I am asking them the same questions.

 

Thanks,


Randall

Autodesk 2020 licensing conflict with LogMeIn ?

When starting an Autodesk 2020 product on Windows, after several seconds a message such as the following appears and the program must close:  Product License - Out of Time  License checkout timed out.

The Autodesk support link below indicates  the LogMeIn display adapter and possibly other services cause conflict with their licensing service.

I found an older post about this problem but there was no resolution posted.  Anyone else running into this problem?  (Yes, I know AutoCAD shouldn't be run remotely but right now that's all we have...)

Re: AutoCad authentication conflict with Logmein

Have you guys contacted AutoDesk in this matter or are you going to contact them or is this just a dead subject?

Re: AutoCad authentication conflict with Logmein

I also have to deal with this, and naturally I would really rather not.  I just had to travel to the office today so that I could activate Revit licenses on several computers.  Remote access is not much good for our users if they would be prevented from activating software that is critical to their job function.

Re: AutoCad authentication conflict with Logmein

Is there any update to this issue?

 

Have you reached out to AutoDesk?

 

Now that we are forced to working at home I cannot go to everyones house to activate their AutoCad.  You saw the work around.  Stop Logmein services, activate Autocad and the start Logmein services.

 

Really a huge issue now.

 

Please help.  I would be available to for testing or to work with you in any way.
