Hi,

Deleting the license file seemed to do the trick.

Thank you very much for your help.

@Miles,

 I didn't realize until this morning that each and every time I launch Iron Speed it checks the activation server.


     I don't remember when it wasn't the case. At one time it would ping back to the IS servers every other build also.

     You can launch Fiddler then ISD and watch the hand shake.

I actually avoid the check to the license server by disconnecting from the internet before starting ISD. Then I reconnect to the internet.

Everything works great I just don't get all of the annoying "add" type stuff when it finishes loading.

Right! ISD will try to connect to the license server at launching time but will not complain if there's no internet connection. That means you are safe working offline all the time.

Cheers,

Well I wonder if you could just block IS in your firewall settings. Then you wouldn't have to disconnect from the internet each time.

Hi Guys,

You could use comodo internet security and block the Designer.exe and Iron Speed Designer.exe except your Database Server. I think you all be safe with that.

Just saw this thread and got kind of worried.
Hadn't been in ISD for a few days.  Seems to work OK with no re-registration required
Definitely putting more effort into moving away from ISD now

It could be application pool crashed and needed to be restarted and it happened even in your development pc.
The technician just restarted the VM. I believe this can be handled better or prevented in the future.

Great idea werther. I have just done that and will move my dev database to the same machine so as not to take any chances. Ironspeed actually seems to start up quicker now it is blocked.

I have an improved method if you just want to use Windows Firewall and no other tool like comodo. The idea is from this post. Just block all traffic above and below your LAN ip address range.

Here is the step by step:

Suppose you want to deny Ironspeed from Internet access but you want it to access your local network so as to connect to your dev database on another local machine. You can achieve it by creating four new rules.

1. Open windows firewall from Control Panel.
2. Select Advanced Settings from the left.
3. Select Outbound Rules.
4. Click New rule at top right.
5. Rule type is Program, click next.
6. For Program path select the path to Designer.exe
7. Click next then select block.
8. Click next, click next again then name the rule "ISD Designer.exe block below LAN" and finish.
9. Right click on your newly created rule and select properties.
10. Click scope. Under remote Ip address click "These Ip addresses". Select "This Ip address range. Enter the starting Ip address as 1.1.1.1. Suppose your LAN network is at 192.168.2.0 then enter the highest IP address below that as the to address. In this case, 192.168.1.255. Click finish then click ok.
11. Repeat steps 4 to 10 but the name of the rule is "ISD Iron Speed Designer.exe block below LAN". Select Iron Speed Designer.exe for the program path.
12. Repeat again steps 4 to 10 two more times, one for each exe. This time name the rules "ISD Designer.exe block above LAN" and "ISD Iron Speed Designer.exe block above LAN". Set the Ip address range to 192.168.3.1 - 255.255.255.255.

That is it. You have now blocked Iron Speed from accessing the Internet but it can still access databases on the local LAN.

It is working for me.

Good information. Thanks. I think the Crack idea is a good one. Only seems fair since many of us did buy a perpetual license.

if you can recover the installation folder, then copy that back over a new install.  That usually does it. Your DOMAIN/machine name needs to be the same as well.

HTH,
