Software & Version
Workbench 2021 R2
*In older versions Workbench gives an error and doesn't open the application. With Workbench 2021 R2, Workbench will give errors but will still open with issues.
This is caused by an issue connecting to the License Server and checking out licenses. The license server may not be specified or the license server may not be running. Workbench requires a connection to the server to know what increments are needed to load into Workbench. Although you can click through the errors to get to the main screen of Workbench, it will fail to operate properly.
When workbench opens, it queries the license server and populates the toolbox with the software tools you are licensed for. It should look something similar to the picture below.
