How do I delete a standalone licence after it has been imported using the Silk Standalone Licence Utility?

How do I delete a standalone licence after it has been imported using the Silk Standalone Licence Utility?

When using a standalone license, Silk Standalone License installer has the option to import a license but no option to remove a license once it has been imported. Switching to SilkMeter mode will cause SilkPerformer to load unlicensed (provided no valid license exists) but when switching back to Standalone mode the license is picked up again automatically because it is saved into a file called policies.dat.

Note: this will only occur if SilkMeter is not installed on the local machine. If SilkMeter is installed on the local machine then the standalone installer and the SilkMeter License server share the same policies.dat file and it will be overwritten when switching from one licensing method to another.

The only way to permanently delete a standalone license is to overwrite it with a new licence file or install SilkMeter and switch to License Server mode within the SilkPerformer license configuration utility.

Any licensing changes made can be verified within SilkPerformer by clicking on Help | About to view the current license allowance.
