Manage the license file

Activator requires a single license file. This license file is in XML format.

Typically, a license is valid for one or more years. At the end of the validity period, you must update the file. In some cases you may need to replace a license file to enable more or less Activator functionality.

You can replace the Activator license file directly on the file system by replacing the old license with the new one.

  1. Stop Activator. See Start/stop script.
  2. Go to the directory <Activator installation name>\Activator\conf and locate the file license.xml.
  3. Rename the old license file from license.xml to license.old
  4. Copy the new license file into the directory, and rename the new file license.xml.
  5. Start Activator. See Start/stop script.
