Matthew Woolnough 10 months ago • updated by Curtis Lusmore 9 months ago 5

Provide Unify EvB license in Base64 Format, rather than binary so that they can be pasted into RDP sessions.  It's often difficult to get these binary files into certain environments.

Hi Matt,

I might just add that you can convert the license to/from Base64 with a PowerShell one-liner.

[Convert]::ToBase64String((Get-Content .\path\to\license.lic -Encoding Byte))
$license = "Base64StringGoesHere..."
[Convert]::FromBase64String($license) | Set-Content .\path\to\license.lic -Encoding Byte

Its very often disabled as a security precaution to stop people from copying files out.

I'll leave the suggestion open to see if we get more feedback on it.

No support from others. Also, if the MSI can be copied to the machine there shouldn't be a reason for the license to be any different.
