[frs-105] I manually installed FusionReactor using the built in web server on Port 8088 & everything seemed to work. I updated some settings in the interface, followed by a CF restart. All I see now is the License Expired screen. Is my license file old?

If you have done a manual installation of FusionReactor check the following details;

(1) FusionReactor resp. the CF server can write to the Windows Registry. To install the license information it needs access to


(2) you also try a different web browser to upload the license file. We have seen Firefox occasionally not sending the binary data of the license file properly – this never happened with IE.

(3) the directory FusionReactor is installed to has read/write access for the server it has been deployed to.

Note: It could be necessary to delete the license value from the registry if the error does not go away. For this stop the CF server and then delete


from the registry. Restart the server and upload the license file again. The license information in the registry will then be recreated.

Instead of uploading the license file, try putting it directly in the license directory:


Once you restart the server FusionReactor will detect the license file and install it to the registry as noted above.
