I am using the toolkit to create a ASP.NET page. I got the licenses.licx file working. When I build I prompts me to Activate or Skip. Once I click Skip it builds.

When I go to load my page in a broswer I get this error.
Configuration Error

Any idea? I have completely cleared my local machine policy and it still doesn't work.

    Hello Eric,

    Sorry for the delay in answering this. I think that the main problem is you won't be able to get SQL Toolkit working in demo mode if you're referencing our assemblies inside a website or webservice project because the activation dialogue (windows form) needs to be displayed to allow you to input a serial number and web apps don't offer the facility to display a windows form.

    The error message you get looks as if it can't locate or run the licensing helper assembly, and this is the assembly containing the activation dialogue. I'm saying, even if you fix this, you'll encounter the first problem, which manifests itself as an error message like 'unable to display a modal dialogue'.

    The solution would be to get a serial number for SQL Toolkit, which isn't possible unless you purchase the product, unfortunately.
