License Troubleshooting

Here are some common errors related to licensing.


Error acquiring license for appID=101 from server (local)\SQLEXPRESS. Exception Message: Warning: Fatal error 9001 occurred at [Date] [time]. Note the error and time, and contact your system administrator.


This is followed by a Registration pop-up window showing that all licenses are available before the program terminates. The error may be caused by a corruption in the *.LDF file or, in some cases, by a virus checker locking the database. To resolve the issue, close all connections to the database, take the database offline, and then restart it.


Error acquiring license for appID=40 from server apc-sql. Exception Message: Object referenced not set to an instance of an object.


This error is typically a result of old licenses left in ST_LICENSE or non-applicable licenses for a different server ID. To resolve this error, delete all rows in the license database ST_LICENSE, except rows pertaining to Custom EDP or EDGE formats, restart Professional and reapply all current, valid keys.

The above error occurs due to an out-of-date license database and may also occur alongside this EQuIS Professional message:
