 LicenceCreator 

This tool is used for creating a licence file. This file enables to run ObjectGears system for more than 25 users and on more web servers/nodes (for a single instance).

Creating Licence file

Licence file is file named Licence.lic, that can be located in the main folder of the ObjectGears system (folder Web with aspx files). The licence is bound to Customer number and Server ID.
The customer ID is unique for each customer. You were provided this ID when you bought the licence. Do not share this number with anybody.
Server ID is unique for each computer. You can use up to 60 servers on which ObjectGears system can be operated for a single licence.

1) Launch tool LicenceCreator. You can find it in the installation package.
2) Enter your licence number
3) Enter ID of the server for which you want to create the licence by one of these two ways:
    a) Clicking on button Read the current ID
    b) In the web client on page MENU / Administration / Information about application tab Basic properties, field Server ID.
    If you want to operate the ObjectGears system on more servers, then enter server ID one after another separated by comma.
4) Click on button Send and generate licence. If everything is correctly filled in and the data are valid, they will be sent to ObjectGears server, the licence will be created and returned back to your computer.
5) Save the licence file to a secure place.

You can generate the licence file whenever you want for up to 60 servers. We recommend keeping a common list of server ID for the whole company. Then you can use the same licence file for all the instances.
If you buy maintenance for a new period of time, it is necessary to generate licence file again in order the time for which ObjectGears can be upgraded to new versions is updated. If you want to update ObjectGears to a new version for which maitenance is not paid and ObjectGears does not run in FREE mode, it is blocked and licence error is returned.

Installing licence file

In order to install licence file just copy it into the main ObjectGears system folder (folder Web with aspx files) and clear the Cache or restart IIS application pool.

Reading the licence will be manifested by displaying your company name on each page. You can find further information on page MENU / Administration / Information about application tab Basic properties field Validity of licence key for updates till, Number of users: current/maximum and Server ID.

Uninstalling licence file

By deleting the licence file from the ObjectGears folder the system is switched to a FREE licence model. If you have more than 25 users recorded in the database, the licence errror is displayed and the system blocked.

 Localization

This tool is localized into several languages (English, German, Czech). The language in which the tool will be started is taken over from Windows. However, if you wish to start it in another language, you can follow these steps (the example shows execution in English):

  1. Create a batch file Com.ObjectGears.LicenceCreator-en.bat
  2. Insert in it command  Com.ObjectGears.LicenceCreator.exe -loc en-US

For other languages use one of these localizations:

  • cs-CZ
  • de-DE
  • en-US

The second option to change the language is the combobox in the upper right corner of the application. The language changes immediatelly.

The application keeps the language till the next change.
