Altova RaptorXML Server 2023

Syntax and description

The verifylicense command checks whether the current product is licensed. Additionally, the --license-key option enables you to check whether a specific license key is already assigned to the product. This command is supported only on Windows systems. It is not supported on Linux or Mac systems.


raptorxml verifylicense [options]

raptorxmlserver verifylicense [options]


To check whether a specific license is assigned to RaptorXML Server, supply the license key as the value of the --license-key option.

The verifylicense command can be called from either executable: raptorxml or raptorxmlserver.


For details about licensing, see the LicenseServer documentation (




Example of the verifylicense command:


raptorxml verifylicense

raptorxml verifylicense --license-key=ABCD123-ABCD123-ABCD123-ABCD123-ABCD123-ABCD123

raptorxmlserver verifylicense --license-key=ABCD123-ABCD123-ABCD123-ABCD123-ABCD123-ABCD123


The first command checks whether RaptorXML Server is licensed.

The second command checks whether RaptorXML Server is licensed with the license key specified with the --license-key option.

The third command is the same as the second command, but is executed by the server-executable.



Options are listed in short form (if available) and long form. You can use one or two dashes for both short and long forms. An option may or may not take a value. If it takes a value, it is written like this: --option=value. Values can be specified without quotes except in two cases: (i) when the value string contains spaces, or (ii) when explicitly stated in the description of the option that quotes are required. If an option takes a Boolean value and no value is specified, then the option's default value is TRUE. Use the --h, --help option to display information about the command.
