To get around this error message, make sure that your license manager is running the license manager software (lmgrd, lmcomsol, etc) version that was shipped with the 5.4 release of COMSOL Multiphysics. Instructions on how to update your license manager software can be found in Knowledge Base 1022

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.

When it is triggered during the installation, it is also accompanied by the phrase: License could not be validated.
