How to set up license for ABBYY FineReader Engine 12 for Linux?

Answer

FineReader Engine 12 is distributed with different types of licenses. Different types of licenses require different information being provided. License info can be passed both during installation and after it using activatefre.sh script. Samples for each license type are listed below.

Passing license info during the installation using FRE12.sh script

  • Online License

    ...
    --license-path "<path_to_the_folder_with_license_token>"\
    --license-password "<license_password>" \
    --skip-local-license-activation

    Note: Online license unlike others does not require activation.

  • Software License

    --project-id "<project_id>"
  • Open License

    --license-path "<path_to_the_folder_with_license_token>"\
    --license-password "<license_password>"

Passing license info using activatefre.sh script
