A student experienced Revit 2018.1 giving him this rather useless error message: Licensing System Error 1 After Googling for a solution, we installed/repaired all the Visual C++ runtimes we could find in 3rdParty\x64\VCRedist and in 3rdParty\x86\VCRedist from the Revit 2018 distribution.

I’ve been exploring Pässler PRTG on Microsoft Windows Server 2016 (Microsoft Imagine Premium) for the past couple of days.
