There's no dongle but there is a license server it needs to
communicate with. I'll investigate that, although based on experience
it usually just blurts out "no license, goodbye". I'll check
permissions as well. Do you know if there is an equivalent tool to
'strace' for Windows that I can use to log all syscalls/file/resource
accesses made by a program and its threads?

Ok, I'm not sure it was going to help anyway, since I can open notepad
remotely when running as the Local System.

Yes, I've made a support request so we'll see if that comes back with anything.
