Overview

An update of a license file is required when the license has expired.

Note: please, backup any previous license files and new license files before proceeding.

Updating the license

FIX Edge

By default, the license information is stored in ‘engine.license’ file, which is placed in the FIXEdge root directory (see in './B2BITS/FIXEdge/'). 

The real name and location of FIXEdge license file are specified in the configuration file 'Engine.properties' in property 'LicenseFile'.

The newer license file should be placed in the directory that is set in the property "LicenseFile".

The license file can be renamed as long as the proper name is set in "LicenseFile" property for every instance installed.

For the license file to take effect, FixEdge needs to be restarted.

Please note: FIX Edge will not start with an incorrect or expired license and relevant record will be added to the 'FIXEdge.log' file located in the './B2BITS/FIXEdge/FixEdge1/log/' directory.

Make sure that after restarting the record about the correct license has appeared in the log file. (For example: "The license for the 'Company name' expires in 30 days".)

FIXICC

  1. Since version 2.9.16 (included in FIXEdge package starting from version 5.11.3) FIXICC works without license file so updating license is not needed.
  2. For older versions in order to update the license for FIXICC you should import a new license file using the menu option "Help -> Import License..." as displayed on the screenshot below and then restart FIXICC.

    If you start FIXICC under your account for the first time, you should repeat step 1 regardless of whether another user has already done it under his account.
    Note: it is necessary to update FIXICC Agent license file too for correct FIXICC working.

    Make sure that after restarting the application the relevant record about the correct license has appeared in the log file. (For example: "The license for the 'Company name' expires in 30 days".)

FIXICC Agent

  1. Since version 2.9.16 (included in FIXEdge package starting from version 5.11.3) FIXICC Agent works without license file so updating license is not needed.
  2. In older versions license information is stored in the ‘fixaj2-license.bin’ file, which is expected to be located under './B2BITS/FIXICC/fixicc-agent/license' directory. In order to apply new license, it is enough to replace the current file with a newer one and restart FIXICC Agent.
