Foundation Installer overwrites license file on every install


Keywords: install, license

Urgency: Standard

General Description:

** NOTE: this only occurs when the license file is saved in the fndtn tree (c:fndtn\data\license.dat)**

When the Foundation install program is run, the license.dat
file is overwritten with a demo license. This is bad if the installer is being run on
an installation which already has a custom license file in place. The license file
is overwritten even when the only change is to add device families.



Make a copy of the license file (and user projects in the fndtn tree) before each install.Foundation


Save the license file to a location other than the fndtn tree.
