How to test if license is embedded in my application?

Post by vmakkenz » Tue 17 Aug 2010 07:07


I have had the following scenario
- App without license which didn't work (local dll's)
- Installed minimal verion of dotConnect for Oracle
- App started working (no changes where made)
- Uninstall dotConnect for Oracle
- App still works!

But now i can't test if license is embedded correctly

Does the installer leave something behind?

How can I make an installation complete undone so i can get the first error back?

We have reproduced the mentioned behaviour. We will investigate it and notify you about the results as soon as possible.

As a workaround, we recommend you to check if your project has a valid embedded license resource with the Tools > Oracle > License Information menu of Visual Studio. Also you can run your application on the workstation where dotConnect for Oracle was not installed before.
