IronCAD Failed to Check Hardware Information
When trying activating IronCAD the following error message appears:
- “Failed to import license: Failed to check hardware information”
- “Failed to check hardware information”
This error message can appear if the Windows User Account Control (Windows UAC) is active on Windows 7 or Windows 8 most likely affecting the IronCAD default installation.
We would recommend to disable Windows UAC access the Control Panel
On Windows 7, click on Start (lower left icon on the taskbar), type UAC and click on Change User Account Control Settings
On Windows 8, go to the top right side of your screen with your mouse and search UAC under Applications
Drag the slider down to Never Notify and click OK (you may have to restart the computer for the changes to take effect)
Uninstall IronCAD and other components (such as CAXA plugins) from Control Panel > Programs and Features then run the installer and follow the IronCAD installation instructions and IronCAD Licensing Procedure.
