  • How to address ‘License error: k4.lic’ during installation?

    Posted by voiddump on January 15, 2024 at 12:00 am

    I tried multiple ways on my MacBook Pro and my VMFusion (whose environment supposedly is windows 11) still the error message ‘License error: k4.lic’ persists.

    My folder structure is as below: (The first is that on Mac, the second&third is that on VMFusion).


    P.S. I would prefer KDB+ be installed on my Mac instead of on my VMFusion, if possible. But I would also really appreciate it if I can solve the problem on my VMFusion.

    Copying my reply from under your request on a different thread:

    Re: Getting License error – KX Community – 13316


    First image looks fine for QHOME=/voiddump/q/m64


    More traditional structure would be to not have that extra level of m64


    • voiddump/q/kc.lic
    • voiddump/q/q.k
    • voiddump/q/m64/q

    In that case you’d use QHOME=/voiddump/q

    Your Windows VM screenshots are incorrect:
    You have q/w64/w64/q it should be q/w64/q

    I changed the QHOME to /voiddump/q and it works! Thank you so much!
