 +====== Resolving "​Unable to communicate with license manager"​ Errors ======
 +**1) Did you just remove the Rhino 5 Beta?**
 +
 +Please download and install [[http://​www.microsoft.com/​en-us/​download/​details.aspx?​id=26347|Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package MFC Security Update]]. After installation,​ Rhino 4 should be able to communicate with the license manager properly.
 +
 +//**2) Are you running Rhino 5 and did you just uninstall Rhino 4?**//
 +
 +  * Flamingo nXt, Bongo 1.0/2.0, and Rhino 4 use a common file called RhinoLM.
 +  * When Rhino 4 is uninstalled,​ the RhinoLM is removed and this leaves Flamingo nXt, Bongo 1.0/2.0 unable to run in both 32-bit and 64-bit Rhino 5.
 +
 +//To reinstall the McNeelLM without reinstalling Rhino 4//, download, unzip, and run **rhinolm_20110309_x86.exe** which is in this [[http://​s3.amazonaws.com/​mcneel/​flamingo/​nxt/​rhinolm_20110309.zip|rhinolm_20110309.zip file.]]
 +
 +  * You must have rights to modify the registry to run rhinolm_20110309_x86.exe. If access is denied, find a computer adminstrator to log in with elevated rights account, and run **rhinolm_20110309_x86.exe**. Windows Vista users: right-click on the file and select “Run as administrator”. ​
 +
 +
 +**3) Running Windows Vista or Windows 7?**
 +
 +Make sure you're running Rhino 4.0 SR9:
 +  - Start Rhino 4
 +  - From the Help menu, click Check for Updates
 +
 +**4) Reinstall Rhino 4**
 +
 +Unfortunately,​ something is wrong with your Rhino 4 installation. Follow these steps to repair your installation:​
 +  - Uninstall Rhino 4 - you may need to remove multiple "​Rhinoceros 4.0 SRx" items.
 +  - Delete the "​License Manager"​ folder under 
 +    * C:\Program Files\Common Files\McNeel Shared\ (For a 32-bit system)
 +    * C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\McNeel Shared\ (For a 64-bit system)
 +  - Install Rhino 4 again
 +  - Start Rhino 4
 +  - From the Help menu, click Check for Updates
 +  - Download and install the latest service release if required
 +
 +**4) Still not working?**
 +
 +If none of these work, see the [[rhino:​licensemanagererrors:​advanced|Advanced Troubleshooting for License Manager Errors]] page.
