My NSP 2004 preview has expired and I requested a new license from the website. I got the email with a new license. But when I tried to update the license, I got the following error. What is wrong? Urgent, please help.


C:\usr\sap\NSP\DVEBMGS00\exe>saplicense -install HFKOTJYWCWA9DPVZPZ7N8YB1


      • SAPLICENSE (Release 700) ERROR ***

    ERROR:   Can not set DbSl trace function

    DETAILS: DbSlControl(DBSL_CMD_IMP_FUNS_SET) failed with return code 20

    RC-INFO: error loading dynamic db-library - check environment for:

    Try using the SLICENSE transaction code.  It should work. 


    If you can not get onto the system, set your system date back to a date when the license was valid.  Start the engine,  log on,  go to transactoin SLICENSE, apply the new license,  log off, change system date back to current date, and re-start engine.

    You can use SLICENSE in ABAP, however for me it started to hang.

    Or use command prompt in the name of nspadm and type saplicense -install WITHOUT the install key. You have to enter the license key in the coming dialog.


    I found my notes for WA1, but it's the same for NSP.


    C:MiniWAS>saplicense -show
