Apply License using File or Stream Object

The license can be loaded from a file or stream object. Aspose.Barcode for C++ will try to find the license in the following locations:

  • Explicit path
  • Current working directory

The easiest way to set a license is to put the license file in the folder you start your application from and specify the file name, without a path, as shown in the example below.

Loading a License from File

auto license = System::MakeObject<License>();


Loading a License from a Stream Object

The following example shows how to load a license from a stream.

auto license = System::MakeObject<License>();

auto licenseStream = System::MakeObject<System::IO::FileStream>(u"Aspose.BarCode.CPP.lic", System::IO::FileMode::Open);
