Why does the ADINA Install License program report different system IDs when my PC is connected or not connected to the network? (node-locked license only)
By default, the ADINA node-locked license program checks the network card ID of the PC. If the PC does not have a network card or if the network card is disabled, the ADINA license program will check the disk ID.
Windows 2000 and newer operating systems contain the "Media Sensing" feature which disables the network card when the PC is not connected to the network. If your PC has the "Media Sensing" feature on, the ADINA Install program will report the network card ID when your PC is connected to the network and the disk ID when your PC is not connected to the network.
To workaround this problem, you can set the environment variable ADINALOCKID to SECONDARY to force the ADINA license program to always use the disk ID. Then, the ADINA license passwords based on the disk ID will work regardless of whether your PC is connected to the network or not.
Setting Environment Variable
You need to edit the C:\autoexec.bat file and add in the following line. Then, reboot your machine.
