Visual Fourtran 11.8 pgroupd.exe error win 7 x64

When creating a new x64 visual fourtran command line project using visual studio pro 2010, visual studio becomes unresponsive, with pgroupd.exe consuming very large amounts of CPU time.

this error appears in the license log file very many times
(pgroupd) DENIED: “pgi-pvf” USER@HOSTNAME (INVALID error code (-9999,333))

when the daemon is killed, a licensing error appears, stating in part

“flexnet licensing error:-15,10 system error 10049 “Winsock: invalid address””
