Error installing licenses: Error(131) Client library is not in initialized state. Please contact Micro Focus Supportline

Error 3:

Windows could not start Micro Focus CES daemon on your computer.

Error 1067: The process terminated unexpectedly.


The formatting of the ces.ini file, which stores the configuration settings for Micro Focus License Manager, has not been setup correctly.

You will need to add a carriage return to the last line of the ces.ini file.  After adding the carriage return, restart the Sentinel RMS License Manager service which should now prompt you to re-start the dependent services including Micro Focus ces Deamon.
