There is a separate license file (sfdbback.slc) for the backup piece.
Thank you for the reply, as I stated I inherited this and have no idea where to start. I cant launch the application and don't know where to find or view the license.
Let me know if you can help (bet you can)
just rename a copy of your production license file to the name peter suggests above and put it in the same folder as the backup tool - the reason it's not working is because you're using an evaluation file. (open it in Notepad and you'll see) .
