Hi,

I've tried to install the license for latest version of DO4 (v4.3) but the install process crashes. This is what I've done:

  • I've downloaded the License.txt from our subscription
  • When the balloon pop-up appeard, clicked on it to show the DataObjects.Net License Manager
  • Clicked 'Install License' to show the 'Install License' dialogbox
  • Clicked 'Install' to show the 'Enter License' Dialog
  • Copied and pasted the content of the License.txt into the Textbox
  • Unhandled exception has occurred in your application......

We'll fix this ASAP: yesterday we changed date format in one place to culture-independent, but forgot to do the same in another. So that's why it crashes on some locales now.

So it's a bug, that wasn't fully fixed (it would crash with initial code as well - but on different set of locales).

You must activate the license as well. Click on "Install license" - "Activate" (via internet). Manual activation works as well.

You can manage \ issue your HW licenses via "My Subscriptions" page.

It seems you're using some older version. See http://blog.dataobjects.net - there were few updates on the previous week.

To find out your build number, you can:

  • Launch the installer. The newest one shows it on the first wizard page.

  • See it in "Uninstall a program" in Windows.

  • Right-click on any assembly we ship, select "Properties", and then - "Details". "File version" there contains build number part.

Hello Michael,

Was it clean installation or you updated the previous version of DataObjects.Net with new dlls? Was the exception exactly the same or something different happened?

Your answers will definitely help us to find out the problem. If it is more convenient, you may send them and the stacktrace, if any to support@x-tensive.com.

Thanks

Same problem, have been running on the trial version for this machine, trial now ended,tried to install license on 4.3.5, did not work, installed 4.3.7 still did not work.

Tried suggestions in the thread, none of them worked.

Not a fresh install, have upgraded several times. Windows 7 32 bit.

This is a BIG problem for me at the moment as I need to fix a problem on our site.

Can't upload screenshot of error, because it requires a karma of greater than 60, seems pretty stupid restriction when someone has been a member of the forum for about 5 years.

anyway, here is the text:

(Jan 31 '11 at 17:50) Tony Tony's gravatar image

Hello Tony, thanks for sharing your experience. Just wanted to figure out, could it be the case that DataObjects.Net licensing agent was running when you was installing/uninstalling DataObjects.Net? If so, installer simply couldn't remove the outdated assemblies as they were locked by OS. I'm asking about such a case because the License Manager had had a similar bug earlier, but it was fixed long time ago.

As for 60 karma limit, it will be removed asap, thanks for pointing me to this disappointing restriction.

System is Windows XP 32, I had this error on DO 4.4.0 (build 7249), then I uninstalled and tried with build 7524 - same problem. I also tried to set my region to english (USA), doesn't help. Unfortunately I can't see the screenshot above showing the config of the format my computer needs. (?)

Also there can't be any older versions (relating to the timestamps of the precedessor posts) active on my machine, DO was initially installed 98 days ago. So it seems the bug is back (or never completely fixed).

Hello CyborgDE,

Please check whether you are instaling a company license instead of hardware one. For more information on license activation instructions please see this manual.

I have the same issue with "DataObjects.Net v4.4.0 (build 7524) for .NET 3.5". System is Windows 7 64bit Ultimate (Service pack 1) with Dutch (Belgium) as the region settings. I've tried changing the region settings to English (USA) but that doesn't seem to help either. The error I'm getting is:

Hello sm001,

It seems that you are instaling a hardware license instead of the company one. For more information on license activation instructions please see this manual.

Important: you need to download and install a company license. The link to it is shown on the screenshot. After successfully installing it, you will be able to activate the hardware license via Internet or manually.
