Repeated FLEXnet License errors warning that license is about to expire or has already expired

Issue

Multiple FLEXnet License File errors warn that the license file is about to expire or has already expired.

Errors may be logged in Windows system log that may look something like this:

Multiple errors may pop up at once or may only occur daily.
