RML Licence File Deployment and Verification

If you have purchased a commercial licence you should receive a licence file.

  1. Make sure any expired/old licence files (ReportLabPLUSLicense.py) are deleted (along with the corresponding .pyc).

  2. Make sure that the new file is copied anywhere on the PYTHONPATH.

  3. Verify by checking:

    -the licence can be imported,

    -the path of the file,

    -the licence number (eg when the the licence was issued),

    -the user field looks right,

    -check the expiry date

    -Example verification:
