Installing an Extended Demo License

When you request an extended demo license from NICE, you receive a license.lic file that defines the license.

To install the extended demo license

Place the license.lic file in the following folder on your server:

  • Windows server

    C:\Program Files\NICE\DCV\Server\license\license.lic
  • Linux server

    /usr/share/dcv/license/license.lic

Alternatively, to place the license.lic in a different folder on the server, you must update the license-file configuration parameter so that it specifies the license file's full path.

To update the license-file configuration parameter on a Windows server

  1. Open the Windows Registry Editor.

  2. Navigate to the HKEY_USERS/S-1-5-18/Software/GSettings/com/nicesoftware/dcv/license/ key and select the license-file parameter.

    If there is no license-file parameter in the registry key, create one:

    1. Open the context (right-click) menu for the license key in the left-hand panel and choose New, String Value.

    2. For Name, type license-file and press Enter.

  3. Open the license-file parameter. For Value data, type the full path to the license.lic file.

  4. Choose OK and close the Windows Registry Editor.

To update the license-file configuration parameter on a Linux server

  1. Navigate to /etc/dcv/ and open the dcv.conf with your preferred text editor.

  2. Locate the license-file parameter in the [license] section, and replace the existing path with the new full path to the license.lic file.

    If there is no license-file parameter in the [license] section, add it manually using the following format:

    license-file = "/custom-path/license.lic"
  3. Save and close the file.
