It may be a license issue. Check your license settings and make sure it knows where the license file is located and that it can access it.

I tried all license solutions that can not solve the problem. There is no error massage in debug log files.

In my license manager status:
Licensing interconnect: running
Licensing interconnect monitor: not running
Flexlm: not running
