Through the company's website to download the latest Realstorm software and install it on the customer's test server, and apply for License file; when operating Realstorm software and importing License file, it prompts that the License file is unavailable.
2, Confirmed with the developer, the License file is correct. The R&D doubts it is because Windows2003 operating system’s own problem, install the Realstorm software on lab’s Window 2003 operating system, it is normal.
