Could you please check that the environment variable SAXON_HOME is set to the Saxon88 directory?

The license file is located in the same directory that contains the validate/transform executable. (see below)

Because the error occured after a 'reboot' of the server, I suspect that some process, service or 'path information' is not longer running or available anymore on that server.

I also installed saxon (with a tempory license) on my own PC, but got the same error. I start thinking that something is missing to run saxon. Is there a path setting needed for that java stuff? What service/process is required?

Re: [saxon] license file saxon-license.xml not found





Strange that this should happen suddenly; this kind of problem is normally encountered only when people first try to get their installation working.
 
The obvious question is, where is the license file actually stored?
 
This error means that the java call File.exists() on the specified filename returned false. Any problem with the actual content of the license file would give a different error.

Hi,



We already have Saxon 8.7.3 running on our system for more then a year. Till a few days ago, we had no problems at all, but that changed Tuesday.


When running 'validate', I got following message


license file saxon-license.xml not found

java.lang.RuntimeException: Error: license file saxon-license.xml not found. Tried in C:\Documents and Settings\dev_ethaens\My Documents\My Downloads\Saxon\Saxo

I can only assume something is missing or not configured correctly anymore, but I don't know what this could be.

The .NET framework 1.1 and related SDK are installed; the PATH and SAXON_HOME variables are containing the correct values...


Question(s): what can cause this kind of error, what can we check furthermore?
