Our legacy WinForm project has few forms with Xceed.Greed control. The project runs OK. However, when I try to open the windows form, I have the license error message (please, see error details below).
The Xceed.Greed.Licenser.LicenseKey property is set up in Main() program at start up. I am not sure how can I set up the Licenser property in design mode to avoid the error. I assume that installation of Xceed Greed tools might help to avoid the error. But, is this is the only way?
Xceed.Grid.Licenser.LicenseKey must be set to a valid trial or registered license key in the code of your application before using this product. Please refer to the Licensing topic in the documentation for specific instructions on how to avoid this exception
Error Cal Stack:
at Xceed.Utils.Licensing.XceedLicense.Initialize(String licenseKey, Type licenserType, Boolean allowThrow)
at Xceed.Grid.GridLicense.CreateLicense(String licenseKey, Type licenserType)
at Xceed.Grid.Licenser.VerifyLicense(FeatureID featureId)
The licensing exception will be thrown when there is a problem with your license key. Having that said, either you are using an old key to unlock a newer version of the product, or you are using a trial license key which got expired. Could you verify your license key and make sure that you are using the right key-version pair. If that is the case, could you send me a simple stand alone sample project which reproduces the issue so that I could have a closer look.
