Unable to install Flex license server

I just created my license for Quartus Std, Floating license edition. I then go to the instructions on how to start a new instance of the License Mgr (lmgrd), pointing at this license file. For some reason, it tells me "Invalid license file syntax" and gives error code: -2,40027.  

 

Can somebody help resolve this?

I think I figured out the problem. I had configured the license file as specified earlier, but then got the impression that I wasn't supposed to do that first. This was a mistake on my part. Now that the license file has been configured, it looks like the license server is starting. Now I just need to configure Quartus to use it. I'm using the same machine for licensing as I am for Quartus itself. Hopefully this doesn't cause problems.

You may need to contact Altera support. But it sounds like a simple error like you didn't save the license file correctly, or haven't specified the right file for the license server to use, or ....

This problem has been resolved. It was just a misconfiguration of my license file.
