FME license system failure

I am trying to set up a Data Interoperability extension "Spatial ETL tool" to read PostGIS data.

I can connect to the PostGIS data base (and FME can see the tables) and select a schema and table, set a destination and then create the tool, but thereafter all I get is a dialog box that says "FME license system failure: License dependency check failed. This FME Suite license is dependent on another license which is not available."

As is so typical, it does not say what it needs, just that SOMETHING is not available. I wonder what?

Then I thought maybe PostGIS is not really supported, so I tried to create a tool with a KML reader and an FGDB writer and I get same error. Tried several other combinations, various settings. Nothing works. Same error every time.

 

Of course I have the extension loaded.

I tried repeating the same steps in ArcGIS Desktop 10.5 in ArcMap and Catalog

I tried turning on every extension that I have.

so, the Data Interop extension is a disappointment. :-)
