I can't say what I think is wrong, but I will go over what I remember of my own installation from a couple of days ago:
I did not uninstall 4 before installing 4.2. I did not install the new SPM server software until the next day.
I installed 4.2, and then had it use the existing license server name. Loaded it up and was running smoothly. The next day I installed the new SPM software hoping it was what I needed for behavior to work. I followed the instructions by disconnecting the dongle from the server while I updated the 1 wire driver, and then reconnected the dongle. Restarted the computer and everything was still working. I can't think of anything special that I did during installation, and it works fine for me right now.
Behavior 2 academic won't work until they update it in the next few weeks.
Try opening lictools and starting the server manually.

It's here http://www.softimage.com/products/xsi/downloads/ , no matter you are an academic or comercial user. The trick is that you need to have a valid username/password set up with the right customer id to access the download section. If you customer id does not allow you to access the download section, contact softimage customer service for help. I had that problem and they corrected it after I called.
Academic users can not get paid upgrade (like XSI 4.5 or 5.0), but are entitled to access the downlaod section for bug fixes and free maintenance releases. Hope this help.
