Where should I use the new style license key?

Post by omascia » Wed Nov 04, 2015 2:49 pm

PDF XChange PRO SDK here. I have got a new style license key recently. The binaries seem to be more or less unchanged (essentially V4). Do I continue using my previous (shorter) key string(s) or where should I (which API) use the newer (longer) key string? The documentation itself has not changed (dated 2012 for the most of it).
Please clarify. :)

Hello omascia,

You should just replace the Key value in your source, and the DevCode could be any string (it is no longer needed), however I am not sure if older versions of the SDK will recognize the new style serial, so if it is not - just continue using your old key with the old builds, and when you move to the new ones - utilize the new serial string you got.

Regards,
Stefan

Ok I'll try. I already had a 5.5 build (whose most DLLs are v4) and it worked with older style keys. I just happened to see today there was a newer build available (check every *some* months) and that it had a newer style license string attached to it. I haven't yet tried it, but it looked the API and the docs had not changed. Hence my question.

So... I'lll try the new string, passing "unused" for devcode. If that doesn't work, I'll pass immediately previous codes. And if that doesn't work either (which I doubt) I'll come back here. ;)
