I am getting an error message when atempting to create a connection in ArcCatalog (I'm working under the 10.0 version). The message is : Failed to Connect to the specified server. No ArcSDE server licence found. Then I Check the Service esri_sde and it has not started, so I try to start it then I get this error message : The ArcSde Service(esri_sde) service on Local Computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they have no work to do. I've tried deleting the service then creating it all over again, checked the registry, launched CCleaner.. Rebooted the computer, still the same error When I check the log files, I got this in the giomgr_esri_sde.log :

And in the sde_esri_sde.log :

I don't understand this licence problem! I have already registered and I do have the licence. What could be wrong ?
