User (Legacy) Posted January 20, 2004 Report Share Posted January 20, 2004 After building and deploying an application using ChartFX for WinForms (first 6.0 and now 6.2) through many revisions over nearly a year's time, suddenly today for the first time the application, running on a client machine, couldn't find a license for ChartFX. The first form to load does create a Chart control at runtime, but another form that gets called up by user interaction later on has a Chart control that was loaded at design time. I was lead to believe that this would be sufficient to carry the license along to client installations, which until today it seemed to be. The license error occured upon loading the first form, and again (if ignored the first time) upon loading the second form. As far as I could tell, nothing significant was changed between the two revisions--just some code in a part of the application that wouldn't get executed until after the license error cropped up. Perhaps more significantly (?), the sysadmin had just automatically installed the latest Msoft patch, KB832482 for data access components, on this machine, prior to my updating the application and experiencing this problem. Once I added licenses.licx to the build (which hadn't been necessary until now) and reinstalled the application, it ran again; with the newly added copy of licenses.licx comfortably installed in the exe file's folder. My question is: why did this happen at this moment? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
