Intermittent license access issues

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am running the demo version of v2 and the latest updates installed and am still experiencing issues with the license being found and not found.

 

Local Port 13 is configured to be open as an Outbound rule in Windows Defender and on occasions I see the EFB Server start up without any warnings but on other occasions it has a problem finding the license.Windows Firewall has also been turned off completely but same issue.

 

Secondly, I also see that I can not start the DbBuilder even though I am prompted that the FS configuration files have changed when starting up the EFB Server. This just runs in an endless loop between DBBuilder and Server where the license can not be detected by the DBBuilder and points back to restarting the Server. In the Licenses folder there is a .dlsc file present. I was able to access the DBBuilder the first time as part of the installation but since then not able to access.

 

Any ideas why this would be intermittent?

 

Example with no warning.

When I purchased EFB2, these issues immediately stopped. Several threads on this problem.

Hi,

 

Yes I have read that, but I would like to try the demo for more time before I decide to purchase or not. If the demo mode is problematic then this somewhat limits the flexibility of having a demo version in the first place. I am still trying to "find my feet" with v2.

 

Right now I am unable to update the database, update the AIRAC etc.

 

 

Regards

Mark

I am having the same problem as above having only managed to use the EFB twice in the last 5 days despite many, many attempts at getting it going.

 

I've now had enough of trying.

 

I'll stick with v1.

Hi Mike Hotel, all

 

Glad I am not the only one in the same boat!

 

I have to say its quite frustrating with trying to evaluate v2 when there's these issues with the demo licenses. So far having installed v2 I have spent approx 1hr over the entire weekend where I got it work. The demo expiry time is counting down and I am limited to being able to evaluate EFB  v2 only at the weekends.

 

Urs- Is there something that can be done here?

 

It's likely that v1 users wanting to try out v2 will be frustrated the same as I am and to be honest jumping in and buying the software because the demo license  doesn't work is not the right way to go about this.

 

If this is the only route to get v2 working (buying a full v2 license) , could you please consider a higher discount for those that are existing v1 users to make this more attractive. Without this and any other help available to fix the Port 13 issues , I am probably going to stick with v1.

 

Regards

Mark
