[CompileLicxFiles] LC - Stuck Due To Dialog

Hello,

we have got an interesting issue during licence compilation. Our application uses 3rd party libraries and one of them needs to be licensed via Licences.licx. The licence expired recently (we no longer need the support) and during the licence compilation (call to LC.exe) it has started showing a dialog with the warning in Visual Studio. The problem is, that the build server is not showing the dialog and even if it had shown the dialog, there would have been nobody to close it. Compilation gets stuck on that call for several hours until we stop it (there is nothing else to do). Is there any way how to automatically close the dialog or how to suppress it? Do you have any idea how to solve the problem?

Thank you,
Jakub

Hi,

To be able to see this dialog please run agent via console and configure the build agent machine not to launch a screensaver locking the desktop (see this section).
It is not possible to automatically close this dialog, this functionality is not available in TeamCity. It could be performed inside build script.

Thank you, Alina. It really works, I am able to see the window and close it. I am working on a script that would automatically close the window.
