High Security Licensing Work-Around
ISSUE: After installing WIMS in a high security environment (a national laboratory) it was found that WIMS would not launch with error: "Hach WIMS cannot start because your Serial Number or License is INVALID."
It was validated that if WIMS was installed on a computer and the customer's high security OS patches were not installed, WIMS ran without a problem.
To solve this a new method was devised to not use the .NET DLL to handle the license. To implement this scheme add the following line into the hach_wims_client.ini (and the ini files for other license driven software components) file:
This method handles the licensing data in the same way as the .NET DLL so the license is still enforced as it always has been.
