ThingWorx 7.4 introduces a new licensing system. A license file (license.bin) needs to be placed in the ThingworxPlatform folder. A new license file is also required if you upgrade from 7.4 to a major or minor release (not service pack-level releases). For example:
• If you are using version 7.3, a license is not required.
• If you upgrade from version 7.4.1 to version 7.4.2, a license upgrade is not required.
• If you upgrade from version 7.4.3 to version 7.5.2, a license upgrade is required.
A new Licensing Subsystem is now available.
Licensing subsystem services include:
-AcquireLicense– service allows for retrieval of feature entitlements in license.bin, used when new license dropped in folder (no need to instance restart)
–GetCurrentLicenseInfo – returns info on current license file
–GetRemainingDaysInLicense –used for trial editions
–GetLicenseUsageData – returns nformation about user’s license usage
–PurgeLicenseUsageData –deletes the license usage data that is two years and older
