CFX is good in my computer until I click SET UP, when this message appears:

Fatal error
The application has encountered an unexpected problem and will now terminate.
Aborting due to unexpected error

that looks mean. 'Failed to connect'... maybe there's a problem with the license server?

I found this which might be relevant to you solution:

As it mentions "This problem is license related and often happens when the license server is located remotely."

Workbench does sometimes make errors much harder to understand.

I would fire up CFX stand-alone and see if you get the licensing error there. At least in stand-alone mode it gives a clear error message when it fails to get a license.
