Version Control and Actipro license files

WPF Studio, Themes, and Shared Library for WPF Forum

we are currently setting up a version control and build server for visual studio and encounter problems with the license information from actipro.

The build server has actipro installed.

The compiler fails on the license. Is there a special way to solve this?
Some mention removing the lic files. But i do not know if this will eventually give a evaluation version when running on a pc where there is not actipro installed.

Hi Arthur,

You should NOT remove the licenses.licx file or its entries. You must have entries for each assembly you have licensed and reference from your project or VS/MSbuild will not embed your licensing data in your resulting .exe, meaning end users will get license exceptions.

What you need to do is just install WPF Studio with minimal options on your build machine. You can uninstall right after. That puts the license data on the machine for the major/minor version you have (2010.2) and it will persist after you uninstall. Then you don't need to do it again until you update to a newer (such as 2011.1) version.

I found out the problem.

We added all the entries in the license.licx. But we only used 3 of them. By removing the license entries that we were not using (no reference) the problem was gone.
This only happens for the build server of visual studio. Local compile was no problem.
The latest build of this product (v24.1.2) was released 2 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
