    I assume you are using MPLABX.
    From the menu, select "Tools", "Licenses", "License Status", then copy and paste what you see back to here.

    the only output after running the bat file is a CMD window that says
    Detecting Operating System
    OS Version: Windows 7/8/8.1/10
    Creating license file "C:\ProgramData\Microchip\xclm\license\"microchip-5.lic
    Press any key to continue . . .
     
    It is "-5.lic" because it is the 5th time I have tried it

    As it did not actually create the license file ( as reported by license status ) I am thinking you might try starting the bat file from an "elevated cmd prompt" in the dir the bat file is.
    It might be administrator privileges are required to create the file.
    In the dir it mentions there should be some files
    [edit: add ] as qɥb   says you can contact Microchip
     Mine looks like this

    Yes, waiting on Microchip, but it is taking its time. They are I think 12 hours apart from me, so I get one message in a day, and one answer back asking for more information.
     
    The bat file does create the license. There is a license in programdata/microchip/xclm/license.
    Actually there are 5 licenses, because I have ran the batch file five times.

    The licence files are just text, so you can look inside them with notepad.

    Microchip were unable to sort this out. Though they did provide me with a working evaluation for the month.
    When I subscribed again in the following month, the license worked
