Licensing of Silverlight viewer for Reporting Services of 3.0+ versions

The licensing of the component uses Visual Studio’s standard licensing approach for the components. It is based on the use of licenses.licx files. For more information, please see here: http://helpcenter.perpetuumsoft.com/KB/a262/licenseslicx-file.aspx

The general approach is as follows: when compiling a project in Visual Studio for all the components included into the licenses.licx which are found on the machine where the compilation is performed, all found licenses will be embedded into the assembly.

In case of Silverlight Viewer for Reporting Services of 3.0+ versions, two components are licensed and both of them are on the server side (where the WCF service is defined). To license the product it is required to perform two steps:

1.       If you do not have a licenses.licx file you need to create it. This file is usually located in the Properties folder in case it is a Web Application or it is located in the root folder if it is a Web Site. Besides, Visual Studio does not allow to create files in the Properties folder. So, you can create a simple text file in the root of the project and rename it to licenses.licx. Then, it can be moved to the Properties folder.

2.       Add the following lines to the licenses.licx file:

PerpetuumSoft.ReportingServices.Viewer.Server.ReportServiceRemote, PerpetuumSoft.ReportingServices.Viewer.Server, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=8a6ae0a3e67829b5

PerpetuumSoft.ReportingServices.Viewer.Server.RemoteServiceProcessor, PerpetuumSoft.ReportingServices.Viewer.Server, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=8a6ae0a3e67829b5

Please note that for 2.xxx product versions, only the first component  is used. The second one was introduced only in the 3.xxx product versions. Thus, if you use 2.xxx version, you need to delete the RemoteServiceProcessor component description, otherwise, when compiling you will get an error that the component is not found.

If you upgraded from 2.xxx to 3.xxx you need to reload license from our site and register it in the license manager instead of previous license. If you don't do that you will get the following information in the trial version window: 'ServiceProcessor requires 'MsReporting.Core option in license'.

3.       Rebuild the project. 


After that, the licenses should be embedded into the component. If this did not happen, please see the following article: http://helpcenter.perpetuumsoft.com/KB/a346/solution-for-the-licensing-issues.aspx
