Agile Designer 2.10 - CodeMeter License Server is not a network server. Error 111

When trying to start Agile Designer after setting up concurrent licensing, I get the following error message:

AgileDesigner.exe: Start Error
One of the following licenses is required.- CodeMeterAct5000362:7
Failure reason: CodeMeter License Server is not a network server. Error 111.


This error is caused from the concurrent license server not being set up correctly. 


ARD 2.10+

To resolve this issue, you will need to set up the license server.
Please reference the following knowledge article 9628 ( or follow the steps below. 


Set up the License Server:

  1. Launch CodeMeter Control Center (CC). Default location for this is C:\Program Files (x86)\CodeMeter\Runtime\bin\CodeMeterCC.exe
  2. In the CodeMeterCC window, click on the 'WebAdmin' button in the bottom, right-hand corner. 

  3. CodeMeter WebAdmin should open in your current browser and you will see it open to the 'Container' tab. 

  4. Hover over the 'Configuration' tab and choose 'Server' from the list.

  5. Under the 'Server Access' tab, in the 'Network Server' box, click on the 'Enable' radio button.
  6. In that same tab, in the 'CmWAN Server' box, click on the 'Enable' radio button.
  7. Click the 'Apply' button.

  8. Return back to the CodeMeterCC window. (C:\Program Files (x86)\CodeMeter\Runtime\bin\CodeMeterCC.exe)
  9. Click the 'Process' tab.
  10. Choose the 'Restart CodeMeter Service' option.

  11. Once the service has restarted, launch ARD. If you are able to launch ARD, everything is set up. 
  12. To learn how to connect your user workstations (ARD Studio) to the license server, please review knowledge article 9628 (

Note: It is highly recommended you upgrade to the latest release of ARD. As of October 21, 2022 ARD 2.10 will be officially End of Service, and no longer supported by Broadcom, unless you purchase extended support.
