Does anyone know the maximum vendor string length for a retail-activation entitlement? Is there a practical limit? What about for a license file?

The vendor string is included as part of the Features entry value within the FulfillmentDictionary element (schema type is xsd:string).

I don't see a schema-defined length restriction, but that doesn't necessarily mean there isn't some practical restriction in the flex library.

Thanks!

The maximum length of an INCREMENT line is 4,096 bytes (see for example the "FLEXnet Publisher Licensing Toolkit Parameter Limits" chapter of License File-based Programming Reference [ProgRef-LF.pdf]), with the only constraints on VENDOR_STRING, NOTICE, etc., being the total INCREMENT length.

I haven't personally tested such an INCREMENT line in trusted storage, but offhand I can't recall having heard of a difference.

Sure enough, the information is right there in the manual. Thanks again.
