Hi guys,
I'm an engineer from Siemens Healthineers Shanghai, and responsible for maintaining the postsharp license server.
Could you help to investigate the following problem:
I've upgraded the postsharp license server to version 5.0.33, but when I try to add licenses to the new server, the error messages pop up:
"Cannot add a (unknown license type) of PostSharp Framework to the server. "
Hint: the licenses can be successfully imported into license server 4.2.2.

With Best Regards,

    Hello Lei,

    We have investigated both license server issues that you have reported. We believe they are caused by the breaking changes in licensing between PostSharp 4 and PostSharp 5. One important new limitation is that by default only Enterprise licenses can be added to the license server in version 5.

    The same issue has already been reported by another team in Siemens and we resolved the issue by generating a custom license for them.

    We have now generated a custom license for your team as well. I'm going to send the license key to you by email. You can then use the new key in place of the original one.

    Best regards,

    Hello Alex,

    Thanks for your help.
    The solution works well for us. The new key can be imported.
    After upgrading the license server to 5, no postsharp license related errors pop up in our team in recent days.

    With Best Regards,
