Installation of the μC/OS-III™ or μC/OS-II™ Real-Time Kernel for CrossCore® Embedded Studio fails with error ‘A valid license file for this product could not be found’. How can I obtain a free evaluation license for the µC/OS Add-Ins?
The reason the installation of the µC/OS-II and µC/OS-III Add-Ins fail is because a valid license must be installed, and activated, before installation can proceed.
To install a free evaluation license, begin installation of either the µC/OS-II or µC/OS-III Add-in. When you are informed that ‘A valid license file for this product could not be found’, select Yes to install a license and from the ‘New License Wizard’ select the option:
I do not have a serial number and would like to evaluate µC/OS-III or µC/OS-II
Click Next and on the following screen select the option:
Install and activate a license all in one step
Enter your contact details on the next 2 screens and once complete click Finish. You will be informed that a license has been successfully activated and will be taken back to the installation screen (you will also receive an e-mail with your license details). Click the Nextbutton to continue the µC/OS Add-in installation.
Note that when you next start CCES you will be reminded that if you plan to use either µC/OS-III or µC/OS-II in a commercial product you must purchase a distribution license. This message will appear each time you start CCES. Click OK to close the message.
Full details on license types and costs of the µC/OS Add-Ins can be found on the µC/OS-III and µC/OS-II product pages
