Where is my ActiveState license file installed?


Where do I find my license file after I run the license installer?


Sometimes it's handy to be able to find your license file after you run the license installer. It can be helpful for debugging license issues and can make life easier when you start using your ActiveState product on another machine.

All directories below are shown relative to your home directory (found in the environment variable HOME on Linux and Mac OS X and in the environment variable USERPROFILE on Windows):

Windows: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\ActiveState\ActiveState.lic
Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\ActiveState\ActiveState.lic
Mac OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/ActiveState/ActiveState.lic
Linux: ~/.ActiveState/ActiveState.lic

The Application Data directory is usually hidden under Windows, so you may have to set Explorer to show hidden files or simply "cd" to that directory in a command prompt.
