Last Published: April 25, 2020

Error Message

The following error message may appear when launching ArcLogistics Desktop 10: "Insufficient license to run the application."


Although the cause is unknown, this error may occur when ArcGIS Desktop 10 is installed on the same machine or if ArcLogistics 10 is not licensed properly.

  1. Close any Esri applications and open ArcGIS Desktop Administrator. In Windows, navigate to Start > All Programs > ArcGIS > ArcGIS Desktop Administrator.
  2. ArcGIS Desktop Administrator, highlight the 'Engine' folder on the left side of the dialog box.
  3. Click the 'ArcGIS Engine Runtime (Single Use)' radio button on the right side of the dialog box.
  4. Click the 'Authorize Now' button, and follow the instructions through the Software Authorization Wizard.

    Be sure to supply the ESU# or license file provided by customer service when prompted to complete the registration.
