We are using Azure DevOps Pipelines for CI/CD. It is currently configured to use hosted Azure pipelines. Based on the following link: Licensing with Pipelines | ActiveReports 15 .NET Edition it states to install the GrapeCity License Manager (gclm) in the pipeline. How can that be accomplished in Azure DevOps? I don’t see a DevOps task that downloads and installs https://cdn.grapecity.com/license/gclm_deploy.exe on the Azure Hosted agent. in other words, how do we compile an AR15 dependent assembly in Azure DevOps if we cannot install Active Reports on the cloud build agent?
Bottom line is that I am looking to activate a license on the agent so that our .Net Framework 4.8 desktop application can build successfully within the CI pipeline. My individual machine is licensed and the application compiles, however, the builds in the Azure Pipeline using Azure Hosted Pipelines are failing.
