Cause

This problem is usually the result of component registration issue.

Fix
The solution is to re-register the relevant PC components.
Follow the below step to re-register:

  1. Unzip the attached 'RegFiles.zip' and extract its content to a temporary location.
  2. From the extracted content, choose the file matching the PC version you are using and rename it to 'HP.PC.PCS.MSBuild.RegFiles.proj'.
  3. Login to the PC Server machine and navigate to '<PC Installation folder>\dat\setup\pcs\msbuild'
  4. Copy the 'HP.PC.PCS.MSBuild.RegFiles.proj' from step 2 (replacing the existing one).
  5. Run the Server Configuration Wizard on the PC Server machine by launching it using the “Run as Administrator” right-click menu.
  6. Open the licenses page again and enter the needed licenses.
