change revit 2015 license from network to standalone

i installed revit 2015 on a laptop but for some strange reason the license type it configures is a network one.
although i select standalone or trial.

i uninstalled revit and installed it again and the same problem happens.

i followed this guide to make a clean install of revit:

the problem persists.
i cant activate revit 2015 because i have a standalone license but when i open it a message appears that
the program cant find the network license.

i did research and you can change on the registry the installation type
on the following entry:


and here:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Autodesk\Revit\Autodesk Revit 2015\ADLM

the value needs to be 2 for standalone and it already has that value
the values are as follow:
1 – Network
2 – Standalone
3 – Multiseat Standalone

i changed the value to 1 and then to 2
but still the same problem

anything else i can try ???
