FlcAdministrationDeleteTrials usage

Jump to solution

I'm struggling with the documentation for FlcAdministrationDeleteTrials (C XT). It says "Deletes storage associated with Trial Licenses." If I use this does that enable a "use once" trial to be used more than once?

Hi @nlederer_dyn ,

Yes.  By default if the Trial License trusted storage is deleted, a "load once" trial can then be loaded again starting a new trial period.  To prevent this behavior you can enable Secure Anchoring.   Please refer to the User Guide for information on how to enable this functionality (snippet from C XT User Guide below).

Advanced Topic: Secure Anchoring

FlexNet Embedded offers advanced functionality called secure anchoring that provides a greater level of anchor security than the standard FlexNet Embedded anchoring techniques normally used for trusted storage on machines that run your license-enabled applications (see Trusted Storage). While default anchoring stores the anchoring information in the anchor file whose location you specify in FlcLicensingCreate, secure anchoring uses additional techniques to store anchor information on the target system.  

Thanks,

Jim
