I am receiving a "License has Expired" message for the Adapter Pack 2.0! RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a development server that is using the BizTalk Adapter Pack V2.0. I am receiving an error indicating that the Adapter Pack license has expired and to contact Microsoft for a license renewal. 

    I obtained the adapter pack from our MSDN license, which doesn't indicate that there is an expiration date. I am not sure what to do at this point.  I have uninstalled and re-installed the product. Still the same error occurs.

    Any help is REALLY appreciated!!!

  • For whatever reason the uninstall and reinstall of an MSDN version of the adapter pack continued to issue that error. Validated that the uninstall removed the registry changes. Verified that the folder/directory of the adapater pack was clean, and still the error.

    As it turns out. I had to shutdown ForeFront to get it to work.

    Score -1 for the anti-virus.

  • Hi Steve,

    I am afraid you have the 120-evaluation edition. You will have to obtain a licensed one though Microsoft, so you have to contact them. In a past project we used installed a licensed one and that was not from MSDN site I noticed. Maybe Microsoft Moderator can confirm this.

  • We ran into the same issue.  In our case the fix was to shut down all BizTalk host processes that were using adapters from the adapter pack before uninstalling and reinstalling.

  • I am yet to see any such warnings in our Production env. Is there any registry entry that can tell me if it is the 120 day eval copy or a licensed copy in our production env?

    Thanks

  • Hi Sanjay,

    I not aware of registry setting in your Production environment. Do you know where the Adapter Pack 2.0 has been downloaded from? If it is from public accesible site (MS) than it is probably the evaluation edition. You could also check which msi has been used; if it is Microsoft BizTalk Adapter Pack 2_0 Evaluation x86.exe or Microsoft BizTalk Adapter Pack 2_0 Evaluation x64.exe than it speaks for it self. Another option is to call MS Support and present your concern.
