How exactly do you do this? If I open the project on the Build machine and hit activate when I get the nag screen I get an error "Cannot Find the 'C1LicenseActivation.exe' utility. Please run Setup to re-install the product."
On running it, you will get a pop-up dialog 'C1Licenseactivation - Activate License'.
Enter your name, your company's name and the serial key. Click next and do not change
the default settings. This will activate the license of controls on your system.
I've got the same problem and tried the solution with the C1LicenseActivation.exe tool as described above by Mohita.
The tool asks for a 28 digit licence key.
Your documentation says, "Beginning February 18th, 2008, ComponentOne distributes serial numbers that are 28 characters long. The old ComponentOne serial numbers are 17 characters. The new serial numbers are comprised of an old serial number followed by 11 additional characters. The new serial numbers can still be used with older versions of ComponentOne products, and vice versa."
So I entered my 17 character key into the masked text box but the tool does not accept my valid 17 character key and keeps asking, 'Please provide the product Serial Number.'
