Hi,

This is not a standard Dynamics GP message.

This is likely a message from a hardware-based license device, such as a HASP key, which enforces licensing using a USB key or parallel port key.

Do you have any third party products or modules in use with GP?  I've never heard of one that uses a hardware license key, but that's my guess.

If this is a new GP workstation or server, check the GP server or other workstations for a physical key plugged into the back of the computer.

Thanks,
