When I start Maestro, I get a message stating that a valid Maestro license key could not obtained.
FATAL -10: Unable to obtain valid Maestro license key. MAESTRO_MAIN
FATAL got_license: could not check out a license for mmlibs version version
FATAL mmerr_initialize: got_license() failed
What might the problem be?
The -10 in the error message means that the license has expired. If you think that the license should still be valid, check the following:
- the license file ($SCHRODINGER/license) is readable
- the license file has a valid license
- the license file does not contain expired licenses
- you do not have a license file with expired licenses in the directory from which you start Maestro
- the date on the machine is the current date (particularly after a machine crash)
- SCHRODINGER is not set to a directory that has a license file with expired licenses
