I try to link the Fortran 18.0 and VS2017 to abaqus, and I copy the path of files to Abaqus CAE, Command and verification properties like the method used by many people.
Cen Liu: There are two licences that are relevant here -- the Intel Parallel Studio license and the Abaqus license. Both the licenses need to exist and be accessible and valid.
You can test the validity of the first of these two licenses by opening the Abaqus command window (or an Ifort command window, from the Start Menu), and compiling a short Fortran source file into an .exe. If you then attempt to run an Abaqus example, and receive the error message regarding a license, you can conclude that the problem is with the Abaqus license, as Steve Lionel pointed out.
