Is there a way to extend the trial version license?

0 votes

I have developed a charting package that uses SciCharts. This package is deployed to other applications in my company via nuget. The problem is that when a consuming application runs in the debugger they see the SciCharts watermark. It appears as though the application isn’t licensed. If the code runs outside of Visual Studio, then the runtime license activates and no watermarks appear.
I imagine that when the “trial” license runs out, the consuming application developers will also get a scary message about expired licenses.

Is there a way to prevent this from happening? I want to avoid a ton of questions from developers worried about licenses. The code we ship via nuget has a dependency on SciCharts but the consuming applications are not using it directly.

To whom this may concern:

I have recently bought a license for SciChart 3D (in addition to a 2D license we already have).

It seems that I’m unable to use both licenses in my software (if i activate 3D, all my 2D charts are shown as “expired”).

We are in the process of attempting to change the 2 separate licenses into a single 2D + 3D license, but in the interim, is there any way i can use both licenses together in my software?

Thanks kindly!

I’ve manually updated one of our apps from v3 to v4.0.6.8442 so I haven’t installed the update tool or anything into my 2013 environment. Initially the result was that the SciChart logo was still displayed no matter how it was run i.e. from debug in studio or directly from the release folder .exe.

I resolved this by replacing the license in App.Xaml.cs with a more up to date one as we’ve recently extended our licenses. Now I can run the exe’s directly (or from ctrl-F5) and there is no logo displayed as I’d expect – However, if I debug into the app using just F5 the logo is now displayed in the graph area.

Is there something the updater tool does to Studio that I’ve missed?

I’ve installed the trial/demo SciChart and am trying to use it in my project to test performance.

The sample project works well and the WPF Examples Suite also works fine.

I’m referencing all the SciChart dlls in my project and added a simple bar chart that I copied from the Examples Suite. The app starts up well, but when the view that contains the bar chart is loaded, I get an exception saying: “The registry key specified by the RegistryStoragePath property could not be opened.” (See attached image Exception.png).
Trying to debug and find out what’s going on, the attached “Process Monitor.png” image is the result of the registry access from my App when loading it (I’m not sure if it helps, though).

Any thoughts on what can be happening?
