  I'm seeing the same exact scenario. I stopped and restarted the license manager but that hung....I had to reboot. Now, when I install my license, it installs it, but with less capabilities:

Licenses Summary

webconf66Max that can be enabled on this system: 40
videoconf66Max that can be enabled on this system: 40

My actual license file:

in my case it was a fresh install, so i installed the license but it seems there is a bug on the install that does not allow the nesessary permissions to the folder that holds the license file so it cannot be writted, so tac engineer toldme:

/* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-priority:99; mso-style-qformat:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman","serif";}

SSH to your MeetingPlace Express server as the user “mpxadmin” and run the following commands:

1.       su

                //this will prompt you for the root password

2.       chown -R mpxadmin:mpx $MP_ROOT/licenses

3.       cd $MP_ROOT/licenses

4.       mv license.dat license.old

Then go back to your MeetingPlace Express web page, Administration, Maintenance, License, and the Install License page and install your license here and select the option “Upload new license file”.

after that the licenses showed ok,
