VWD -Express, licensing

Postby mysqlfred » Mon 10 Apr 2006 10:33

:cry: Hi!
I'm for the moment running VWD express (Studio 2005 ordered) and I've recently purchased the MySQLDirect.net data provider.

I can't get rid of the message:
"License not found. Please view "Licensing" topic in MySQLDirect .NET documentation for details or contact Core Lab technical support. " on my local developing server.

Do I have to add something in the web.config file?

Do you have App_Licenses.dll assembly in the Bin directory of your site? If not please get it placed there:
1. Create a file named licenses.licx, if this file does not exists yet.
2. Open the file with a text editor and place this line inside:
CoreLab.MySql.MySqlConnection, CoreLab.MySql
3. Save the file and add it to your project.
4. Make sure it is embedded as a resource.
5. Execute "Build Runtime Licenses" command in the licenses.licx file context menu in the Solution Explorer view.
You are done.

You can find it in the Bin directory of your site.
If you can not find it there please perform the steps 1-5 from our previous post.

We ought to have same application name for App_licenses.dll to work properly. Try to compile license using the following command:
Code: Select all
"%Compiler Path%\lc.exe" /target:App_Licenses.dll /complist:licenses.licx /i:"%Assembly Path%\CoreLab.MySql.dll"

Has this solved the licensing problem completely?

Alexey - I want to make sure you're clear on what I have in my /bin directory:

app_licenses.dll.licenses
(note: it has the extension of ".licenses" on the end..)
Corelab.data.dll
Corelab.mysql.dll
Corelab.mysql.web.dll
licenses.licx


* that's it *

There should not be any .licenses suffix. I thought you succeded with creating App_Licenses.dll file. How "app_licenses.dll.licenses" file was created?

ugh ... OK, well I *thought* I had since the command actually worked and it generated a License file. All I did was execute the command as you asked me to. I ran it in the SDK\2.0 JDK /bin directory and it created the file with a .licenses appended - see output at the bottom.. here;s the command I entered:

lc.exe /target:App_Licenses.dll /complist:"C:\Documents and Settings\Tim\My Documents\My Web Sites\City Swing\Bin\licenses.licx" /i:"C:\Program Files\CoreLab\MySQLDirect.NET2\CoreLab.MySql.dll" /v

so, I have no idea why the .licences is getting appended. But I *do* know that it doesn't work if I try to rename it - removing the .licenses from the extension.

What am I doing wrong? Oh, and here is the output of the lc.exe command ... to save time..
