License Command Line Tool

After successful installation the module activates itself. If you want to use the module on a different server, you need to deactivate it first.

The command line tool allows you to deactivate your license. You can also get the license status and the expiration date.

The wse-modules-vudrm-x.x.x-all.jar file can be executed from command line as Java application. Please make sure you have Java installed on your server with the below command. The minimum Java version is 9.
