In order for DiffDog Server to work, it must be licensed via an Altova LicenseServer on your network. The LicenseServer installation package is available on the virtual drive you have mounted in the previous step. To install LicenseServer, double-click the installer package included on the virtual drive and follow the on-screen instructions. You will need to accept the license agreement for installation to proceed.
Altova LicenseServer can also be downloaded and installed separately from the Altova website (http://www.altova.com/download.html).
The LicenseServer package will be installed in the folder:
•Altova server products must be licensed either with the version of LicenseServer that is appropriate to the installed DiffDog Server version or with a later version of LicenseServer.
•The LicenseServer version that is appropriate for a particular version of DiffDog Server is displayed during the installation of DiffDog Server. You can install this version of LicenseServer along with DiffDog Server. Alternatively, you can install LicenseServer separately.
•Before installing a newer version of LicenseServer, any older one must be de-installed. The LicenseServer installer will do this automatically if it detects an older version.
•LicenseServer versions are backwards compatible. They will work with older versions of DiffDog Server.
•If you install a new version of DiffDog Server and if your installed LicenseServer version is older than the appropriate LicenseServer, install the latest version of LicenseServer available on the Altova website.
•At the time of LicenseServer de-installation, all registration and licensing information held in the older version of LicenseServer will be saved to a database on your server machine. This data will be imported automatically into the newer version when the newer version is installed.
•The version number of the currently installed LicenseServer is given at the bottom of the LicenseServer configuration page (all tabs).
Current version: 3.8
