When installing the software, installing the license, running the "machid" program, or running Maestro, I get the following unusual message:

556: Illegal number: unknownunknown

What should I do?

This message is produced by the platform program. One situation in which this arises is when GREP_OPTIONS is set to use color. You could try unsetting this environment variable before running the command, to work around the problem.
