KB - Auto Licensing failed to return a new license

Problem Description

NOTE: If you have installed BBj or BBx 22 you will be using the BASIS License Service (BLS), please seen the BLS Documentation found here.

BASIS has upgraded its license servers to be more secure.  You will need to update your BLM before your renewal date so that your BLM can automatically update your license for you.  You can download the most current BLM from our website, to download the most current BLM for BBj or PRO/5 please use the following link, and select BLM from the Product menu.:
