“No license has been found. Without a license, the program will run on ‘evaluation’ mode..” – CODESOFT Error Message

Summary

This Error Message Article explains the CODESOFT error message “No license has been found. Without a license, the program will run on ‘evaluation’ mode (it won’t be possible to save and print the label). Press ‘Yes’ if you want the program to run on ‘evaluation’ mode. Press ‘No’ if you want to quit.” and details how to fix the underlying problem that caused it to appear.

Explanation

CODESOFT has determined that no activation key is available (either USB, local soft-key, or network license). Without contact with an activation key, the software will either go into ‘evaluation’ mode (meaning it will operate for up to 30 days after install) or quit altogether.

Solution

An activation key needs to be made available to CODESOFT. Key options include:

  • USB key (plugged into a USB port on the local machine)
  • Soft-key Activation (installed on the local PC and validated via Internet connection)
  • Network License Key (running on a License Manager somewhere in the network)

Additional Comments

Issue Found: Server 2012 R2 with CODESOFT 2012

We have seen this error message appear immediately after “The network license cannot be found…” error message.
