As a follow-up to my message, I installed the beta using "user"
privileges without a problem. When run, the system ran in demonstration
mode, but was fine otherwise. After uninstalling, I reinstalled using
system privileges (local system account, not administrator). This
installed without problem, and found the network license without a
problem.
