Q: Why is there an "Unlicensed for Runtime" watermark on the map after deploying my web application to IIS?
A: You are seeing this message because the Production Web Server license is not installed on your server. There are two kinds of licenses for Map Suite Web Edition:
- The Development License is for a development environment. It allows you to develop your application within Visual Studio.
- The Production Web Server License is for a production environment. It removes the "Unlicensed" watermark in runtime.
To install the Production Web Server License, you need to run the Map Suite Web Edition Server Preparation Tool that can be found in the My Downloads section of the Customer Portal. Easy-to-follow installation instructions are included with the tool.
If you have any additional questions about the Production Web Server License or the Server Preparation Tool, feel free to post them below. If you need help setting up server licensing in your specific environment, please open a support ticket at the Customer Portal and our professional support staff will be happy to assist you.
Thanks for choosing Map Suite!
