QuickBooks Error 3371

Hi to all community members,

I have recently configure my system and after that when I try to run my QuickBooks, I am receiving an error box on which it is written “QuickBooks could not load the license data”. This may be caused by missing files or damaged file. And the only option I can click is “OK”. After that error box disappear but this process still continues.  If anyone has a solution to this error, please share it here.
