The licpath.lic is a text file that contains the name of the server that has the network license manager. It points the Autodesk network program to obtain the license from that server/machine.
Historically, at least since AutoCAD 2002 the licpath.lic has been located in the programs folder, but with 2017 it has a new home.
Here are the locations of the licpath.lic:
It is in the programs folder, like c:\Program Files\AutoCAD 2004. Sometimes a subfolder under that folder like the C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Inventor 2013\BIN folder. And if you were using something like Civil 3D 2016 it may even be in c:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD 2016\C3D folder. That said, look under c:\Program Files and you can do a search to find all the different licpath.lic files.
The new location is based in part on the 2017 product key of the program(s) you have installed.
The product key for AutoCAD is 001i1, Architecture 185i1, Revit is 829i1, and Inventor is 208i1.
So for example:
- AutoCAD 2017 look in: C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\CLM\LGS\001i1_2017.0.0F
Note: the 001i1 is the product key for AutoCAD. So if you are using AutoCAD Architecture then use the product key 185i1 in place of 001i1.
- AutoCAD Architecture 2017 look in: C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\CLM\LGS\185i1_2017.0.0.F
- Revit 2017 look in C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\CLM\LGS\829i1_2017.0.0.F
- Inventor 2017 look in C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\CLM\LGS\208i1_2017.0.0.F
