January 06, 2016


I have replaced the expired license with the new one. Still I keep getting License Expired error.

flex.messaging.LocalizedException: License Expired , Please Contact Zephyr Support


Most probably you have downloaded the license.lic file in a windows machine, moved the same to the linux server and applied there or copied and pasted the content of new license file in the old one. 


  1. Download fresh license from the email/ticket from Zephyr.
  2. Zip the file in windows machine where you have downloaded it
  3. Copy the Zip file to the linux server and extract there.
  4. Replace the old license file with the new one in %Zephyrroot%\zephyr\license
  5. Restart the server.
