The code to see if the license file exists does not work with XP SP3 as far as I can tell. I have 2 instances where it hasn't worked with XP SP3 anyway, while other SPs work fine. Have you guys seen this problem and maybe have a work around?
We think that is is a case where correlation does not mean causation.
We use XP SP3 and have nor seen a problem, not has anyone else reported a problem. We can't think of anything that would be affected, the license check is just the reading of a file. Are you embedding the license file in the executable jar file, which is the best way to do it, or is the license file accessed as an individual file from the disk.
When did you purchase the software? The license file has been eliminated in the current version (1.7) of the software. If you recompile your app with the current version there is no need for a license file.
Ok, thanks. I figured that 2 data points was questionable, but SP3 was the only common thing I could come up with as to why it didn't work. I unfortunately must use the licensed version as I currently need to use java 1.4. I will try to embed the file into the jar file and see if that helps.
