I have a licensed version of a ComponentOne product but I still get the splash screen when I run my project.

If this happens, there may be a problem with the licenses.licx file in the project. It either doesn't exist, contains wrong information, or is not configured correctly.

First, try a full rebuild (Rebuild All from the Visual Studio Build menu). This will usually rebuild the correct licensing resources.

If that fails follow these steps:

1.   Open the project and go to the Solution Explorer window.

2.   Click the Show All Files button on the top of the window.

3.   Find the licenses.licx file and open it. If prompted, continue to open the file.

4.   Change the version number of each component to the appropriate value. If the component does not appear in the file, obtain the appropriate data from another licenses.licx file or follow the alternate procedure following.

5.   Save the file, then close the licenses.licx tab.

6.   Rebuild the project using the Rebuild All option (not just Rebuild).

Alternatively, follow these steps:

1.   Open the project and go to the Solution Explorer window.

2.   Click the Show All Files button on the top of the window.

3.   Find the licenses.licx file and delete it.

4.   Close the project and reopen it.

5.   Open the main form and add an instance of each licensed control.

6.   Check the Solution Explorer window, there should be a licenses.licx file there.

7.   Rebuild the project using the Rebuild All option (not just Rebuild).

For ASP.NET AJAX 2.x applications, follow these steps:

8.   Open the project and go to the Solution Explorer window.

9.   Find the licenses.licx file and right-click it.

10.  Select the Rebuild Licenses option (this will rebuild the App_Licenses.licx file).

11.  Rebuild the project using the Rebuild All option (not just Rebuild).
