If a dialog box appears saying the license manager could not be reached or that a license key is not available, most likely a firewall is blocking your access to the Governor's School License Manager server. If you are installing at home, contact your ISP. If the installation is at school, contact your school's technical representative.

During periods of heavy usage of the software, you may receive notice that a license key is not available if all licenses are in use. Also, the License Manager will not be available - hence you will receive an error message if you try to run Tecplot360 - during Governor's School class hours, which are approximately 7:00 am to 12:30 pm weekdays.
