JBuilder was successfully registered, but somehow after joining a new network
domain, Jbuilder is either:
- asking to be registered again, or
- throwing an "Unknown license file format" error.
Why did this happen, and how is this issue resolved?
When you join a new domain in Windows, a new user home directory is created
for you (and all of your old user info may have been copied into the new profile).
Even though you still log into the OS using the same user name, your user home
directory may have changed "behind the scenes." For instance, if your
user home directory was called "jsmith," your new home directory will
be something like, "jsmith_MYNEWDOMAIN."
Thus, if JBuilder is asking to be registered again, merely proceed through
the registration process again, using the same account info which you used when
you registered the first time. If you are receiving the message, "Unknown
license file format," then you must then navigate to your new user home
(e.g. jsmith_MYNEWDOMAIN), and then delete the borland.lic file located in the
.borland directory, and then you will be able to reregister.
On Windows NT, this will be:
On Windows 2000/XP, this will be:
c:Documents and Settings<user name_DOMAIN>.borlandborland.lic
