    Azure Devops - CI/CD Pipeline Licx issue

    I have a .NET Winform Solution that uses ComponentOne componentes. I´m new to Azure Pipeline and I started to create the Pipeline to build my project that is in Github. The .NET Winform solution have multiple projects that reference to the ComponentOne dll's that I have in a "Reference Assemblie" folder in my solution. (So im not using Nuget for the componentone dlls).

    Do I need to do anything in order to get my build compile my project without any license issues? Because my current license (I'm just the developer) is installed in my Desktop and in my laptop.

    To license a build machine or server you can install the ComponentOne controls via NuGet alternatively in your project. That will install the GrapeCity License Manager tool (gclm.exe) that must be run to activate your serial key on the build machine.
    The GCLM will be available at the following location

    After the build, please deactivate the key otherwise you might lose your activation.

    For this scenario, we provide a special type of Pipeline license which is designed for the build agent which could activate any count of machines. Compare to a normal developer license, the Pipeline license could make build, but do not allow to use of design-time or designer and it needs to activate before the build process every time (the expired date is the next month ending).

    To purchase this license you can contact the sales team on the below-given information and they will assist you further accordingly:

    Please let me know if it helps or not.
