Hello, I already have a license for ABBYY FineReader 10 which is already activated on our Development Server. Now we are planning to re-platforming our system to Java, so as part of that POC - I've installed ABBYY FineReader 10 on my local machine and activated our same existing license through networked license. After doing this - I am trying to run the sample program shipped with ABBYY FindeReader and getting below error. "There are no licenses on <<my local="" machine="" name="">>"

How can I point the sample to load a license which is there on our Development server and NOT on my local machine?

Below is the code responsible for loading the FineReader Engine... Engine.Load( SamplesConfig.GetDllFolder(), SamplesConfig.GetDeveloperSN(), null, null );

In case of the "There are no licenses ..." message you should contact the technical support of your region. Please, find the contacts in Developer's Help -> Contact ABBYY -> Technical Support.

Thank you, But then why I am seeing my development server's license in my License Manager installed on my local machine. I would expect my java class to recognize the license which I loaded through networked license. Isn't it?

To better assist you and to help with network license in FineReader Engine it is necessary to investigate some additional information, such as the Ainfo report, the serial number. Please, send it to The Ainfo report (a ZIP file) can be created via the AInfo utility (run Ainfo.exe from the \Bin\Support folder of FREngine).
