Cannot License our Full Version of the ToolKit.

I have ensured that I have a valid SQL Comparison and Synchronization Toolkit serial number (I registered the software when it said activate full version).

I added a licenses.licx file to my VB.NET project in Visual Studio with the lines:
RedGate.SQLCompare.Engine.Database, RedGate.SQLCompare.Engine

I have compiled my application, but when I run it on a outside computer, it says that my trial version has expired and I need to enter the serial number or quit. Am I supposed to give out our serial number to all of my clients or am I missing something?

Note: If I run the .exe file on the development machine, it works just fine.

Thanks for your help.

    No, this is telling you that when you built the project, the licence wasn't embedded into the resulting assembly. Please make sure that the licenses.licx file's build action property is set to Embedded Resource and then try rebuilding the solution. To be sure your customer can run the application without the nag requester, try opening your assembly in notepad and see if you can find your serial number inside the file. If you see it, then the licensing worked.
