Can I merge multiple license.xml files from different orders into one license.xml file?

Version 5

    Yes you can.

     

    For an automated utility to do this, please see this Automated capability to merge two license.xml files into one license_merge.xml file.

     

    For manual steps, please follow these instructions below:

     

    When you place an order, all registration keys for that order are part of the license.xml file generated for that order. All the registration keys in the license.xml **for a single order** file are always cumulative, irrespective of how or when the license IDs were submitted.

     

    If you ordered our product over multiple orders, you may have multiple license.xml files, one form each order. You can simply consolidate all licenses from multiple orders into a single license.xml file. Simply open the license.xml file in any text editor and cut and paste the respective tags <license>, <id>, <user> and <key> into a new consolidated license.xml file. Paste these under the product name <CETerm> tag. Here is an example that merges keys from file 1 and file 2.

     

    license.xml from Order 1 (file 1)

    <?xml version='1.0'?>  
    <CETerm> 
    <license> 
    <id>012345667</id>
    <user>MyCompany</user>
    <key>99694KL5555K2HACYX4HK96L555596C3</key> 
    </license>  

     

    <license>
    <id>901234567</id>
    <user>MyCompany</user>
    <key>996TMY66666KVER4YX4HK97777RB94PN</key>
    </license>  
    </CETerm>  

     

    license.xml from Order 2 (file 2)


    <?xml version='1.0'?> 
    <CETerm>
    <license> 
    <id>ABCD1234</id>
    <user>MyCompany</user>
    <key>99694K11117K2HACYX4HK92222RB96C3</key> 
    </license> 

     

    <license>
    <id>1234ABCD</id> 
    <user>MyCompany</user>
    <key>9933336BZRCKVER4YX4HK96LUD4444PN</key>
    </license> 
    </CETerm>  

     

    Consolidated license.xml from Order 1 and Order 2

    Simply cut every thing inside the <license> tag from all individual files and paste it into a new (consolidated) license.xml file.

     

    <?xml version='1.0'?>
    <CETerm>
