Uploading an encrypted ASR license file to ArcGIS Administrator fails to authorize ArcGIS Engine 10.0 SP1 through SP4.
This is expected behavior, and not a bug. ESRI did not introduce this feature until ArcGIS Engine version 10.1. Thus, attempting to authorize ArcGIS Engine by uploading an encrypted ASR file to ArcGIS Administrator fails at version 10.0.
IAuthorizeLicense.AuthorizeASRFromFile(pathToASRLicenseFile, password);This code successfully authorizes ArcGIS Engine on Windows 7, 8.x, and 10; and on both 32- and 64-bit platforms. See the Microsoft Word file supplied with the ASR License file package for the full source code (.NET and C++) needed to perform the authorization.
