How to configure FineReader Engine licensing settings to use a Network License


Where to find an example of the LicensingSettings.xml file configuration for a Network license?


An example showing simple LicensingSettings.xml files for a network installation can be found in the Working with the LicensingSettings.xml File article of the Developer's Help; or you can find it below:

Licensing Service is located on the computer with the "ServerMachine" name. The TCP/IP protocol is used for communication between the server and workstations.

On the Workstation

Change the LicensingSettings.xml file located at the Bin or Bin64 subfolder of the FineReader Engine installation folder:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LicensingSettings xmlns="">
<MainNetworkLicenseServer ServerAddress="ServerMachine" ProtocolType="TCP/IP" />

On the Server

Change the LicensingSettings.xml file located in the folder:

%CommonProgramFiles(x86)%\ABBYY\SDK\XX\Licensing\  for 64-bit operating system


%CommonProgramFiles%\ABBYY\SDK\XX\Licensing\ for the 32-bit operating system,

where XX - is the version of FineReader Engine version:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LicensingSettings xmlns="">
<ConnectionProtocol ProtocolType="TCP/IP" />
