Issue Details

I am using NI License Manager to connect to a server hosted on FlexNet Publisher. I can use software like LabVIEW and can see that I am connected to the server, but the licenses all appear grayed out. 


This is a known issue with both NI License Manager 3.7 and 4.0 with FlexNet Publisher. It should not affect usage of the licenses, only appearance. Users should still be able to check out and use licenses assigned to them. Check the bug fix  and known issues documents in future releases of NI License Manager to find out when the bug is fixed.
