The whitepaper about Enterprise Architect Deployment shows how to install Enterprise Architect on a remote system and how to set a license key.
But it does not show how to „release“ an existing basic key.
This is what we want to show today.
In the Enterprise Architects installation folder (default: “C:\Program Files (x86)\Sparx Systems\EA”) you will find a “key.dat” file.
Such a file is also present in the AppData folder of Enterprise Architects. (default: “C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Roaming\Sparx Systems\EA\key.dat”)
To release the basic key you only have to overwrite the AppData file with the one contained in the Installation path.
