1216434 - Err Msg: "You are not licensed to use this DataDirect Technologies ODBC Driver"

Symptom

An application uses Crystal Reports as the reporting

development tool.

The application uses a report that connects to a

database using the DataDirect (former Mermant) ODBC

driver (Crxml18.dll).

When the application is distributed to a client

computer, the following error message appears:

"[DataDirect][ODBC XML driver]You are not licensed to

use this DataDirect Technologies ODBC Driver under the

license you have purchased."

Why does this error message appear and how do you

resolve it?

Resolution

This error appears because the license file was not

distributed with the application.

To resolve this error message:

1. Distribute the appropriate license file to the client computer.

" Distribute the license file Qecr.lic if your

application is based on Crystal Reports version

9.2.0.448 and uses Crdb_odbc.dll version 9.2.0.xxx.

" Distribute the license file Ivcr.lic if your

application is based on Crystal Reports version

9.2.3.809 and uses Crdb_odbc.dll version 9.2.1.xxx.

2. Install the license file to the C:\Windows\system32

folder or to the application's working directory.
