I have ArcObjects .NET code that is running on a machine with ArcGIS for Server 10.1.

The application worked on the dev server. But when I moved to Test server, I am not able to initialize the licenses.

This is the code I am using

bool succes = false;
AoInitialize arcObjectInitEnv = new AoInitializeClass();
if (arcObjectInitEnv.IsProductCodeAvailable(esriLicenseProductCode.esriLicenseProductCodeStandard) == esriLicenseStatus.esriLicenseAvailable)
    status = arcObjectInitEnv.Initialize(licenseCode);
    throw exception(...);

I am sure I authorized the server right. and I am able to run ArcGIS server manager. And test the services and they are working fine.

I compile as "Any Cpu" , which is the same I used for Dev. Is there tool that give me "availablity" for server, like desktop? I didn't install ArcObjects SDK on the test server, because I assume it is not required there. Is that true?

How can I troubleshoot this?

  • Did you try changing esriLicenseProductCodeArcStandard to esriLicenseProductCodeArcServer? – Kirk Kuykendall Mar 4 '13 at 20:45

    Shoud you compile it in x86? due it is ArcObjects – XtianGIS Sep 18 '13 at 15:20

Try to use the function


then get rid of the code related to AoInitialize arcObjectInitEnv = new AoInitializeClass();

this funtion can be used if you are not going to use any extension.
