SecLic - Comet License Retrieval / Installation Utility
SecLic is a utility which allows the retrieval and/or installation of the latest license certificate for your Comet Security Server. The license will be retrieved directly from a Signature Systems server and will be the most recent one issued for your security token. SecLic may be run either directly as a user utility or incorporated into your own application and ENTERed to run silently. Just be sure to have a WinSock gateway configured (a type 3 gateway).

To run it directly simply run SecLic from READY:

To run it silently from your own app, you pass your choice of options via # buffer this way:

print (#) "OPT 1"
enter "SecLic" dir="REL"
input (#) Result$
There are 3 options:
  • 1 - retrieve the latest certificate from the server and put it in the CometServices folder
  • 2 - activate whatever certificate is in the CometServices folder
  • 3 - retrieve and then activate
The message you pass via the # buffer is case insensitive and any number of blanks are allowed between "opt" and the number. If the first 3 bytes of the buffer are anything other than ucase("opt") the dialog will display instead of running silently.

The result string will indicate the success or failure of the operation(s). It will begin with either "+OK" or "-ERR" and be followed by a descriptive message.

This utility is available on both Comet16 and Comet32 and for both USB and parallel plugs.

SecLic was added to the REL release in version 10.02 and requires Comet version .413 or higher and Comet Security Server version 10.0 or higher. As of REL 12.09 SecLic can be run from a CometMobile client.
