Problems Running Reactis

• I just installed a new local license file, but when I start Reactis, a window titled Reactis Settings appears, listing local MAC addresses, the local license file path, and license servers. Despite the local license file, a note appears saying [not currently using local license]. Why is this?
• While running Reactis I got the message Lost connection to License Manager. What happened?
• While running Reactis I got the message Lost connection to backend. What happened?

Reactis License Manager

• I have installed the Reactis application on my machine. How do I configure it to access a license from a remote License Manager running at my company?
• Does Reactis use FlexLM(TM)?
• Can the Reactis License Manager be installed as a service?
• Can I view who is currently occupying Reactis licenses?
• The License tab of the Settings dialog and the standalone License Monitor utility do not display the names and phone numbers of people occupying licenses. Why not?
• When I exit Reactis, is my shared license immediately available for use by others?
• I upgraded the machine the License Manager runs on, and now I get the error message Couldn't find ethernet adapter with MAC address xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx in this machine when I try to start the License Manager. What is happening?

• How can I get a copy of the Reactis License Agreement?
• Why did my Reactis license expire?
