Activation on TFS Build machine

Hello,
as stated in the license agreement, "Flexera Software grants Licensee the right to install and use the software on a single computer to be used
exclusively with Visual Studio and the right to install and use up to two (2) additional instances for use within a Team Foundation Server environment".

The latter is exactly what I did: i installed the ISLE on a Team Build machine, where no visual studio installation exists.
Now, I can correctly compile and build my solution containing an ISL project. The problem is that when I run the built setup.exe, a message stating "This Setup was created with an EVALUATION VERSION of InstallShield" is shown.

So, the question is: how can I activate ISLE on a Team Build machine where Visual Studio hasn't been installed?

Activation of TFS Build machine

Hi mdmazzotti,

Thank you for using InstallShield Limited Edition.

The message you recieved "This Setup was created with an EVALUATION VERSION of InstallShield" indicates that the product has not been successfully activated yet. Activating the product should resolve this issue.

You can activate the product by launching the product and entering in a valid serial number.

I will send you a private message so that I can further assist you with this activation issue.

Similar problem, but in Build process

I'm receiving the following when building the solution in TFS2012

"C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\InstallShield\2012SpringLimited\InstallShield.targets (96): -7159: The product license has expired or has not yet been initialized."

I activated ISLE with the received activation-code by opening VS2010 on the TFS-machine, creating a Setup-project and entering the code. It seems the activation only applied to VS and not TFS/MSBuild

Kb q212933

Hello,

Please take a look at the below KB article and as suggested please grant administrator privilege to the Build Controller service and check if that helps.

The link does not work, it takes me to a very generic page and not a knowledge base article.

Re: Activation on TFS Build machine

Here is the updated link:

https://flexeracommunity.force.com/customer/articles/en_US/ERRDOC/Q212933


Cause:
This error is known to be thrown if the Build Controller service's configuration is set to run using credentials that do not have administrator privileges, such as the NT AUTHORITY\NetworkService account.

Resolution:
Use the Team Foundation Server Administration Console to change the Build Configuration of the Build Service. This can be done by selecting Properties under the Build Service and changing the Credentials to an account that has administrator privileges.
