PLECS blockset viewer problem

+1 vote

Dear Sir,

I have installed PLECS Blockset in the PC with Windows 7 Operating system. I have used the trial license.lic file when license file was asked during installation. After installing, I have started MATLAB 2017a 

The following error message came when I am starting to import components from library browser: The PLECS Viewer only permits the simulation of circuits. All modifying operations of the schematics editor are disabled 

The MATLAB library contains Plecs blocks in it.

How to solve this issue?

The error message indicates that a PLECS Viewer license is in fact installed on your computer. This could be a left-over from an earlier installation. A PLECS Viewer license takes precedence over any other PLECS license that you might have installed.

Please see for instructions on how to locate and remove a PLECS Viewer license.
