Create New Feature Class 10.1

I am using ArcView 10.1.

I tried to create a new feature class (point) using the toolbox. Have received the following error repeatedly

Error -8012 Unable to locate the installation folder

I worked around this by creating the feature class in ArcCatalog then adding to ArcMap. However would like to know why I'm having a problem using the toolbox.

Is this yet another 10.1 bug? I currently cannot connect to the license server via VPN nor borrow a license. I have run through every possible work around yet nothing works.
