My question is, can a purchased copy (for which we have an activation key) be licensed using a .key file, or can it be only licensed using the License Key parameter of the connection string?
The documentation for licensing .NET Standard libraries (https://www.devart.com/dotconnect/oracl ... ndard.html) says both are possible:
In the Key Loading Priority section, it also says:The dotConnect for Oracle license key can be either specified at runtime, in the License Key connection string parameter, or placed as a file to the C:\ProgramData\Devart\dotConnect\License\ folder.
Indicating that again both are possible.Keys, specified in the connection string has priority over the key files, placed to the C:\ProgramData\Devart\dotConnect\License\ folder.
Can you please provide an example of how to use a .key file?
