SWP 6 license

Today when I opened SWP 6, I got the error message that my copy of Scientific WorkPlace was unlicensed, see attached screenshot. However, under SWP > Help > License information is stated "This computer is licensed to run Scientific WorkPlace. This license never expires."

Functionality seems unaffected and closing and reopening SWP does not reproduce the error message, so the problem is not a serious impediment. It is, however, disconcerting and has never happened to me before. Could it be something to do with upgrading the OS on my computer to Mojave?

I think Barry could be right: at least in my case all the problems occurred shortly after turning on the computer: my guess was that there was some interference with a virus-scanning program that was running in the background (which is why I didn't bother to report it).
