I am unable to connect to the License Server.

Kofax Capture ERR logs is throwing the said error below:-
Exception [Thread=1] [Kofax.KCS.ImportConnector.Config.KICBinaryResolver] Failed to initialize license. at Kofax.Licensing.ᐈ.ᐁ(SALicServerInfo , ᐔ , Object[] , Object[]& )

This could possible be due to permission to the database or caused by a proxy.



Solution 1:-
1) Ensure the Service Account and Password is correct and are able to connect to the database

Solution 2:-
1) Disable the Servers Proxy Settings in Internet Options

  • Open Internet Explorer
  • Go to Internet Options
  • Go to Connections Tab > LAN settings
  • Check if there are proxy server setup
  • Disable/Uncheck this if there is any
