Abstract: Fatal error validating license
When starting the IDE, an error message similar to the following is shown.
Fatal error validating license for <Product Name>. The license manager reported the following error: Licensing storage C:\Documents and Settings\<your username>\.borland\borland.lic cannot be written. (<Error Number>).
This is caused by an antivirus holding an exclusive lock to the files used to maintain the product's license information.
Disabling the antivirus, or preventing the antivirus from scanning the Documents and Settings\.borland directory would resolve this issue.
