6.73 FAQ-1031 Why do I see "orglab exited with status 53" error when I try to start FLEXnet Server?

Last Update: 7/27/2023

FLEXnet server version 11.19 or later version requires Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable Package. If it is not installed, you will see one of the following error messages in the log file when you try to start FLEXnet server:

orglab exited with status 53 (this status is reserved but will never be generated)


 9:12:34 (lmgrd) orglab exited with status 255 ()
 9:12:34 (lmgrd) Since this is an unknown status, license server 
 9:12:34 (lmgrd) manager (lmgrd) will attempt to re-start the vendor daemon.

To solve this problem,

  • If you are using FLEXnet 11.16 or earlier version, please upgrade to version 11.19 or later. You can always download the latest version from here.
  • If you are running the latest version but still see this error message, you will need to download and install Microsoft Visual C++ 2015-2019 Redistributable Package manually:
