Web-api project license distribution on IIS

Post by Mrt » Fri May 27, 2022 3:00 pm

How can I distribute a license of a web-api project in IIS?
By launching the project in debug mode from the development system, the trend watermark is removed while it remains on the server.
I am using TeeChartWebDemo example with Steema.TeeChart.NET.4.2021.8.23 library.

Hello Marta,

once you have the sample on the other thread working in Debug, you can publish it to IIS. The steps are:

1. Add an application to your IIS:

2. Modify the source code of Content.aspx.cs so it looks like this (make sure the 'webServer' variable has the same name as the IIS share):

3. Use Visual Studio to publish the app:

4. The app now runs in IIS without the watermark:

Thanks so it works.
I have another question regarding this topic.
I have an old web-api application, I followed the example and added the various files for the license. In debug everything works but when I publish it I see the watermark.
I can't figure out what's missing to show the runtime license
Thanks
Marta

Great! Which means it does work if the configuration is right.

As I'm sure you can imagine, it is extremely difficult for me to try and infer what is going on in your project by looking at that image! Is there any way you can try and cut it down to something you can put in a zip file and post on here? We need to be able to reproduce your problem here to be able to help you, I'm afraid.

You're right, I cut the application to the bone and saw that if I publish the watermark it disappears.
I didn't do this application but the problem at this point is of a different nature. I will investigate
Thank you
