I have solved the problem. It turns out that episerver MUST check the MAC adress of all your network adapters installed. Which means that you can not have any network adapters disabled. You must also make sure you have WMI drivers installed with your network adapters. If you get any License failure, go check your WMI, by downloading a script that checks your WMI. WMIdiagnostic tool

I just encountered this while setting up an old EPi 4 site on my local machine. The WMIdiagnostic tool from MS wouldn't work for my 64-bit Windows 7, but I got it working by using a new License.config bound to IP instead of MAC.
