10085: When starting FBS, the error message "An error occurred (error number: -100) when reading the license plug". What does this mean and how can the error be fixed?

The error with the error number -100 means that no driver for the license plug is installed. FBS does not work without a driver installation. First, install the driver for the license plug. An integrated driver installation can be used via the FBS Start window --> Installation and maintenance --> Install license plug driver.

Please note that the build-in installation for FBS editions before 2018 is only supported for Windows XP and Windows 7. For Windows 10 the build-in driver installation is available since January 2018. For older versions the installation of the FBS-driver must be performed manually. To do this, open the FBS installation CD with a file manager (for example, Windows Explorer, Total Commander, etc.) and display the contents of the CD. On the CD, you will find the HASP User Setup application at --> System --> Driver V741 Setup. You can use this to manually install the required driver.

Administrator privileges are required to install the driver. Please also refer to the FAQ ID 10086.
