You have started ZModeler with old license key after new license key was already activated. In such a case, license server lets ZModeler change license key, but it might happen ZModeler fails to install new license key. After 5 attempts to validate old (expired) license key, your platform is flagged with this warning message. It is set as platform title, so you can clear it in your web account.

To prevent this from happen again, it is recommended to remove both CodeLib file(s) from "Shared" folder when license expires; then start ZModeler to let it download updates (it will download empty license storage file), so it will be ready to install and accept new license on next start.
