Error description

  • When attempting to launch IBM Rational DOORS 9.4 or later and
    using a 'flexid' license key in conjunction with a USB 'dongle,'
    DOORS will fail to launch with the following error:
    
    Invalid Host. The hostid of this system does not match the
    hostid specified in the license file
    
    At this time, the only workarounds are:
    1) Use DOORS 9.3 or earlier.
    2) Use a different key type (Authorized User, Server based
    floating, etc.)
