How Do I Confirm or Force License Registration?

Keywords: 	 registration licensing configuration

Question:

On NT4.0 SP4, IIS4.0, I am having a problem registering WebBatch. I actually think it's a problem with my installation. I can get the reg screen to come up with this
   http://www.yourcompany.com/webcgi/webbatch.exe
and I am able to type in the codes, but, when I hit submit it says:
HTTP error 405
Please ensure you have the proper MIME type setup for the resource you are requesting.
I've created the webcgi dir and assigned it to the webbatch.exe path

I guess I'm not 100% clear on how to set it up in IIS4.0. Can you clear me up?

Answer:

In the IIS virtual directory setup dialogs checks the permission settings for script access and read.

Also check the NTFS security settings on the directory to make sure the IIS_USER has access to the directory.


Related Question:

I have a problem--we recently purchased WebBatch, but our temporary license has not expired yet.

I reinstalled WebBatch, but I didn't get the registration dialog. Is there a way to force the registration dialog without uninstalling WebBatch?

Answer:

http://www.yourcompany.com/webcgi/webbatch.exe
all by itself should do it.

Resolution:

I got the registration screen to come by executing WebBatch.exe in the CGI directory, but then I had a problem with the 405 error. My cgi directory for this particular site was set up like this:
   http://www.root.com/dir/cgi/WebBatch.exe
but the registration dialog was looking for
   http://nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn/cgi/WebBatch.exe
So I created a directory in the root of my web server that matched the TCP/IP address the script was looking for and copied the WebBatch.exe and six dlls to the new directory and tried again and it worked.

Then I deleted the directory and everything seems to be working correctly.
