Dear Tsiriaks,


I have followed the link instructions and tried, but no future file was found. Please help.

How far ahead did you search ? I'd recommend to go up until year of 2100 , just for a kick. If there is still none showing up, I'd recommend to search online for a free tool to look for these files since Windows sometimes can't find them. This error is also very common for all software that's using FlexNet licensing, so you may be able to find someone suggests certain free search tools for this issue.

I had tried to search until year 2599, and I found 4 future files and delete it. 

Now I face this no valid license problem, could you please advise ?

Open CMD Prompt and issue the following command

"%awp_root195%\..\Shared Files\Licensing\winx64\ansysli_util" -checkout MECH_STRUCT

and post the output of it here.

I cant find anything from the CMD, but I believe you are looking for this ?

ok, it's actually still having the same issue : system clock has been set back

Can you search for the future files again ? It might be easier to find a tool online that help you search the entire systems for any future date, doesn't have to be specific to certain year in the future

By the way, those 4 future files that you found, were they related to certain software ? If so, perhaps you can try uninstalling that software for now.
