    I'm not sure if this question has been posted somewhere before ... sorry if I had repeated the post.

    I'm currently evaluating telerik web controls and find that the license key is kept at /RadControls/LicenseFile.xml at web application folder. This has made the LicenseFile.xml available to public if the default license path is used.

    I know that this can be solved by changing the license path for each control that is used (this is troublesome if lots of controls are used), or wrap the controls to manually set its license path.

    I wonder if other than the above solutions, is there any other suggestion?

    Thanks for your time.

    Hello Yee,

    Thank you for being conscientious about our distribution policy.

    However, you should not worry that the license file is available to public. It is only a trial key and anyone who wishes to evaluate the r.a.d.controls can generate such a license free of charge. Besides, the trial key is tight to the IP/machine name of the production server that hosts the application. The developer versions of our controls do not use License keys and if you buy one, your site will not need a License file.

    If, however, you have something specific in mind which we are missing, please, elaborate.

    Expecting your reply,

    the telerik team
