The assignlicense command is available on Windows only. It uploads a license file to the Altova LicenseServer with which RaptorXML Server is registered (see the licenseserver command), licensed, and assigns the license to RaptorXML Server. It takes the URL of a license file as its argument. The command also allows you to test the validity of a license.
