Seems the real problem was license file itself. I replaced my license file with new license and problem was resolved.


Open the licence file and look for the hostname see if its the same as your machine name.if not please check with tridion support.

  • i never gave them machine name or any other credentials for SDL Web 8, Don't think that "Developer Licenses" for Web 8 are machine specific. Apr 1, 2016 at 20:26
  • Yes you are right developer licence is free for web 8 meta.tridion.stackexchange.com/q/403/401 please checj this post might be useful or email tridion support or provide them with logs if you see any errors apart from the screen shot you provided.

  • If the license you received from support has a machine name in it, then there was a mistake in the license. Dev licenses do not have machine names.
