PGI license server won't start (error 1067)

I just installed PGI Community Edition 18.10 on a Windows 10 Pro (version 1803) workstation w/ VS 2017 (version 15.8.3). pgcc hangs when I try to compile a simple hello world program. A check of the license server shows it isn’t running and when I try to start it I get an Error 1067 (The process terminated unexpectedly) dialog box.


I have CUDA 10.0.130 installed as well, if that’s important. CUDA appears to work fine. PGI was installed after the CUDA toolkit.

Hi Dana,

I don’t think the license server is needed for the community edition. After the installation a trial license should be in C:\Program Files\PGI\license.dat

Try compiling hello world again but set FLEXLM_DIAGNOSTICS=3. What does it output for you? Expected should look like something below.

$ FLEXLM_DIAGNOSTICS=3 pgcc helloworld.c
