We often get asked which license features are required by our applications and that can sometimes be difficult to answer due to a number of factors. However, we have the capability to output a debug log file for licensing that will show you the requested and granted license features for the application you're running. It's fairly simple to generate this debug file:

 

  1. Set the MGLS_DEBUG_LOG_DIR environment variable to a writeable directory.
  2. Run the application, using functionality that will consume a license.
  3. Exit the application.
  4. Check the specified directory.

 

The license transaction information is written to the end of the log file:

We also have a utility on Windows that you can use to generate a runtime diagnostic report with this information. You can watch a video that demonstrates its use:
