Missing License

Recommended Posts

I'm planning on using ChartFX in my VB component and placing the charts in

an ActiveReport report. When I attempt to add the ChartFX Internet Control

to the ActiveReport control I get "Missing License" printed across the


I use ChartFX successfully in my ASP project, but now I need to print the

charts in a report and export them to PDF.

What do I need to do to use the ActiveX version of ChartFX or fix this

missing license problem?

Article Q1381030 references ChartFX 98 and I'm almost sure ActiveReports 

1. I'm working with ChartFX Internet 5.5 and ActiveReports 2. Anyhow, I

need a bit more information. I've successfully used ChartFX Internet 5.5

charts in my client's web pages using ChartFX's ASP functionality. Now I

need to wrap up these charts in an exported PDF file created in my COM


OK, so I insert a form in my Visual Basic DLL. What do I do from there?

Do I add the ChartFX Internet Control to the toolbox and then add it to

the form? If I do that the words "Missing License" are still printed out

across the blank charting area. What do I need to do next? From what

I've read, I need to create the first chart here and then I could go on

to add further charts into my ActiveReports designer.

I really need some help here, because I've got a deadline looming and I

am lost.

Which component are you adding to the Active Report ? Chart FX IE Client ?

Chart FX IE Client is designed only to run inside a browser, it requires

HTTP connectivity from the container to download license information. Chart

FX IE Client can not be used in a WEB server.

I think what you want to do here is to export the chart as a picture

(Metafile, Png, JPeg) and then embed this picture into the ActiveReports
