Problem Description

In COMSOL Multiphysics 5.5, I receive some or all of the following error messages:

The license could not be validated  
No such feature exists  
Feature: SERIAL  
License Path: C:\...\license.dat  
FlexNet licensing error:-5,414 

Solution

This error is either triggered from the installer when installing and using port@host to point to a license server, or when launching COMSOL Multiphysics.

To resolve, make sure that your license manager is running the license manager software (lmgrd, lmcomsol, etc) version that was shipped with the 5.5 release of COMSOL Multiphysics. Instructions on how to update your license manager software can be found in Knowledge Base 1022
