Michael,

We won't be supporting anything but full installations of DBT running as an
shared activation server, because we haven't tested -- and don't plan to
test -- pared down configurations.

However, all you should really need are:

1. The activation file (the whole Activation directory, including
features.ini).
2. slsService.exe and slsService.ini.
3. slsServer.exe.
4. slsLocal.dll

If your "server" is Windows 98 (not recommended) then you don't need
slsService.exe and slsService.ini either.  These don't work in Windows 98
anyhow.  But you need to find a way to get slsServer.exe running on startup.
Look in slsService.ini for an idea of an appropriate command line, then you
might add and appropriate entry for slsServer.exe to the key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

Hi,

This may be a somewhat obscure question, but I will ask it anyway. What is
the minimum install on the license server box that will actually work?

On our system, we have the license server installed on a station that is
never used for Braille production. From what I can tell, this system only
needs to have the slsService installed to distribute licenses. The main
executable will also be required to register the system and get the licenses
to distribute. Is there any other item that needs to be installed in this
situation? Once the license has been retrieved, would it be possible to
remove the main executable without affecting the operation of the license
server? If I did such a change, would this be a supported configuration?

Thank you very much!
