Thank you all for your thoughts, it's a pleasure.

For sure, the (my) license is based on the MAC address (flexLM supports 
different license approaches as you mentioned).

Done. Please find the messages in the attachement. I shrinked the 7 MB 
file to those lines around the error message. But because I'm a 
Windows's internal newbie it'll take me some hours to understand the 
messages. But anyhow I'll investigate the messages later but also any 
help is very welcome.
