PGM Command Line 9.6: Issue (re) license command

Created: 07 Oct 2011 • Updated: 07 Oct 2011 | 1 comment

When I try to issue following command:

command = "pgp --license-authorize --license-name ""myName"" --license-organization ""myOrganization"" --license-number Dxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxx --license-email --force"

I get following messages:

pgp: license authorize (2706: PGP Command Line already has a license)

license authorize (3104: could not read file, no such file or directory)

I thought I would be able to re-license with a "--force". Also I do not understandthe 3410 message.

Thank you.

You're correct, using "--force" will force a re-license.

PGP Command Line supported "off-line" authorization using an authorization file.  (Since the acquisition by Symantec the use of an authorization file is not needed.)  You're getting the 3104 error because PGP Command Line thinks one of your arguments to "--license-authorize" is the name of the authorization file, and it can't find that file.  You probably need to add extra quotes around something or otherwise adjust the invocation.
