I just updated from 7.23 to 7.27. I'm getting a shareware prompt when I start up.

Yes, I did a full recompile and shareware is not set on in wconnect.h.

One more place to check:

wwDotnetBridge::Init()

#IF .F.   && <---- THIS
   WAIT WINDOW NOWAIT ;
      "Welcome to West Wind Client Tools." + CHR(13) + ;
      "This is a shareware copy of wwDotnetBridge." + CHR(13)+ CHR(13) +;
      "Please register your copy."
#ENDIF

This is one place I sometimes get wrong during updates as I use the same code base to build both the full and shareware versions. In all other places this is set by the #SHAREWARE #DEFINE so a recompile with the flag set to #DEFINE SHAREWARE .F. in wconnect.h will fix those libs, but wwDotnetBridge doesn't use wconect.h so it's a manual process.

Just checked and looks like the updated released version I put out a week ago had this to .T. and is likely what's giving you the shareware message.

I've updated the release package again... so you can either re-download or make the quick fix above.

Thanks. That was it.

This isn't the first time I've screwed this up.

Usually happens when I have to go in and fix something after the initial release and republish. Usually do the shareware build after the release build and then forget to remove the flag.

I guess I should just add wconnect.h to wwDotnetBridge.prg and not make this mistake again.
