MPE+ does not find the network license.

Error message being repeated is "unable to establish contact with a local or network license source".



  1. Confirm you have the newest version of MPE+
  2. Confirm that your Network License Server is up as has an available MPE+ license by going to http://<NLS_Machine_Name>:5555 in a browser
  3. Place the attached file in "%ProgramData%\AccessData\Products\Common" on the MPE+ machine
  4. Launch MPE+ and input your Network License Server name when prompted



In certain situations, MPE+ is unable to create NLMPreferences.xml, which is the file that tells it where the network license is located.
