Registering the SS license via the SERVICESTACK_LICENSE variable

I have a solution with several projects that all required a license entry in the web or app.config files. We are running version so we should have the SERVICESTACK_LICENSE option available. I did the following to convert our solution to use the key through the environment variable:

  1. Commented out all references to the servicestack:license keys in my config files
  2. Added a SERVICESTACK_LICENSE to the system environment variables
  3. Restarted IIS Express
  4. Ran my application from VS 2013

Now my application does not run without getting the “The free-quota limit on ‘10 ServiceStack Operations’ has been reached” error. Is there anything else I need to do to make this work?


You’ll also need to restart VS.NET, if that doesn’t work try restarting the PC.
