New license checks in EurekaLog installers

All non-freeware EurekaLog installers will use addtional license check since build.

Nothing is changed in installation process for Trial edition and Tools Pack. However, installers for Enterprise and Professional editions will require a valid license key. You can obtain license key automatically:

Enter your e-mail and password and click "Next" button. These are the same credentials that you are using to log in to your control panel on our web-site.

Installer will connect to our web-site and automatically obtain a new license key from a suitable license. You can continue with installation as usual. Of course, this option requires you to have a live internet connection during installation.

Note: of course, you have to have a valid license for the currently running installer. Installer will tell you if it is unable to obtain a license key.

Alternatively, you may obtain license key manually. Go to your control panel:

You have to find installer that you are going to run and use a corresponding "Get License File" link. This will start download for .ellicense file. .ellicense file is an ANSI text file, which can be opened in any text editor, transferred between machines, etc.

Important: be sure to select the right installer. License keys are installer-specific. Installer will reject license key generated for the different installer.

Once you have .ellicense file - you can insert its content to the installer:

Assuming you have entered a valid license key - installation will continue as usual.

Important: please note that license key is valid for a short amount of time (few days). You can install EurekaLog on your machine, VM, etc. in a row. But if you want to re-install EurekaLog a week later - you would need a new license key. There is no limitation on generating license keys, so you can obtain a new license key whenever you want.

EurekaLog installer supports extra ways to refer to a license key:
  1. You can simply put .ellicense file in the same folder as installer. Installer will see this file and use it - assuming it has the same name. E.g. EurekaLog_7.5.1.205_Enterprise_for_RAD_Studio.ellicense for EurekaLog_7.5.1.205_Enterprise_for_RAD_Studio.exe;
  2. You can supply .ellicense file name or its content via /LICENSE=filename-or-content command-line switch for the installer;
  3. License key is preserved between installations, so you may install/uninstall/reinstall the same installer without re-entering license key.


  1. Doesn't seem to work. I've tried all methods.

    1. Expand the license branch and download exe + license file.
    2. The license file is ignore when put in the same folder and same name (except for the extension).
    3. Enter login and password result in error message saying no valid license found.
    4. Pasting the key into the edit field, in the installer, result in the same error message as above.

    My license is valid until Jan-2018.

    I think you don't take time zone into account when checking key.

    1. Fixed, thanks!
