Licensing server problem

Post by taralex » Wed Feb 08, 2012 8:51 pm

We've been having technical problems, and our licensing server was unavailable for a while. I didn't know about that and was trying to run tests. I ended up seeing totally weird errors I never saw before, my scripts would just stop working for no reason. I spent almost a day trying to figure out what's happening until I saw a comment in another thread that you do Environment.Exit() if there's a licensing error.
I think it's unacceptable to just quit on the user without letting him/her know why you do that. please fix it.

Did you check your Report file?
Ranorex places an error to the report file. The message should sound like "There is not suitable/free license for your machine".
Another possible solution would be to use following method to wait for a valid license
