The following procedure assumes that your Oxygen XML Editor TCP floating license server contains a previously activated license key and provides instructions for replacing the activated license key with another one. The goal of the procedure is to minimize the HTTP license server downtime during the activation step of the new license key.

This is useful if, for instance, you want to upgrade your existing license to the latest version or if you receive a new license key that accommodates a different number of users.

To replace a floating license key that is activated on your floating license server with a new one, follow these steps:
  1. Stop the process that runs the floating license server.
  2. Locate the folder that holds the previous activated license key (by default, it is named license and it is located in the installation directory of the license server).
  3. Remove the license.txt file and try to restart the server. Since the file that stores the license key is missing, the server will fail to start.
  4. Find the license activation procedure in the on-screen instructions.
  5. After you copy the activated license key in the license.txt file, restart the license server.
