Many thanks for your support.
I ran the Mercury GUI Help check you proposed and it tells me the license status is normal and the license file was in the expected location.
I've now realised that, although I needed to run the installation using a local ADMIN account, I needed to run the command prompt using my login, non-ADMIN, account in order to solve this problem. Once I did that, I could run the Python interpreter test you proposed without errors and run_tests.bat seems to be working correctly.
Dear CCDC Team,
I successfully installed the CCDC Python API on an earlier machine but I am now having problems installing on a new machine.
Everything seems to be working until I get to the point of running the unit tests via run_tests.bat, which generates the error message in the thread title.
I am working on Windows 7, with "vanilla" Python 2.7.12. In case it is relevant, I need to elevate my user privileges via entering the details of an ADMIN account (not the standard account I am logged into) when running things as an ADMIN. I am also able to run the Mercury version 3.8 GUI without any complaints about the license.
I provide a detailed account of the steps I took below.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
I am trying to follow

INITIALLY, THIS WAS FAILING WITH "No valid licence located. Access is available to all organisations and institutions."
I SET CSDHOME=C:\Program Files (x86)\CCDC\CSD_2016\CSD V5.37 [as a SYSTEM variable]
