    Hi, i got a new harddrive today and Everything works fine, but in VS 2012 I get an error on every Project where I use GrapeCity.ActiveReports.Viewer.Win.Viewer.

    The error is:
    Error 286 Exception occurred creating type 'GrapeCity.ActiveReports.Viewer.Win.Viewer, GrapeCity.ActiveReports.Viewer.Win.v7, Version=7.1.7470.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=cc4967777c49a3ff' System.ComponentModel.LicenseException: This application will be terminated because it was built with an invalid license for Viewer. C:\Users\maxca_000\Documents\Visual Studio 2012\Projects\Minhyra\cl_brf\My Project\licenses.licx

    In my licenses.licx I have these references:
    GrapeCity.ActiveReports.SectionReport, GrapeCity.ActiveReports.v7, Version=7.1.7470.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=cc4967777c49a3ff
    GrapeCity.ActiveReports.Viewer.Win.Viewer, GrapeCity.ActiveReports.Viewer.Win.v7, Version=7.1.7470.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=cc4967777c49a3ff

    I only get an error for the last one.

    How can I fix this?

    Hello Max,

    AR7 license is bound With CPU Id and HDD Id. Whenever HDD ID or CPU Id is changed then license status is changed to "Invalid". You need to deactivate the license from the old harddisk and reactivate the product in the new harddisk to avoid this issue.

    Hope it clarifies.
