Licensing Fails when I rename my exe

Postby Giles_Collingwood » Tue 30 May 2006 14:26

I am trying to write a screen saver that gets some data from Oracle.

Visual Studio will only generate an exe - then you must rename it to .scr to get windows to use it as a screensaver. When I do this CoreLab Oracle drivers complain about the licensing !!!

Please help

Thanks

OraLDirect .NET requires special embedded resource being present in your
application. This resource can be added automatically when you drop
OracleConnection component to the WinForms designer, or created manually. For more information refer to 'Licensing' article in OraDirect .NET documentation. Please read it carefully.
Inform us if you cannot read documentation.
If instructions provided there do not help you please make sure you have
newest version of OraDirect .NET installed. If you do, specify your .NET
Framework version, OraDirect .NET version.
Please inform us if you solved the problem.

When I RENAME the exe it goes wrong

Hi

It works fine when I use the .exe file I made (I have already added licenses.lic manually to the project) BUT when I rename the .exe to .scr then it starts complaining !!

Please advise,

Thanks
