I received a student license yesterday from my school and am trying to get it to work on my home desktop. I used the information linked here: https://community.hexagongeospatial.com/t5/Licensing-Knowledge-Base/Student-Licensing-Guide/ta-p/224...
Everything went fine and without a hitch. I opened up the program and then started working on my homework. Once I needed to go into the Toolbox and use the Model Maker tool, I receive this:
I have gone into the Geospatial Licensing Administrator 2018 program and tried to activate the license there, but not sure if I really have to or not since I have a NL coded license and not a CC coded license. Regardless, it didn't work anyway. I did also find another post o here that talks about a broken .Net link, so I went in and repaired that, and then again tried to activate the license through the Geospatial Licensing program. It did go a bit further this time, actually showed the license and I clicked on the activate button, then it disappears and I can't tell if there is a license or not. Still get the same error pictured above though.
When I first log in, I do get a screen that says I am using a license for IMAGINE Essentials versin 16.5 from my college. Any help would be appreciated on this so I can get to work on this project.
Solved! Go to Solution.

It was determined that @spatialguy was using a Geospatial U student license. The Geospatial U student license only provides access to the Essentials tier of ERDAS IMAGINE, which does not include Model Maker. The Model Maker tool requires a license for ERDAS IMAGINE Advantage. Instead of using a Geospatial U student license you need an Educational Core student license. The license administrator at your university can provide you with a new license activation ID for the Educational Core student license that will allow you use the ERDAS IMAGINE Advantage and ERDAS IMAGINE Professional product tiers.
