Microsoft .NET Framework language compilers embed Measurement Studio licenses into your assembly every time you build an assembly that references a Measurement Studio licensed class library. The compilers use License Compiler (Lc.exe) to do this. The input to License Compiler is a licenses.licx file that contains a list of licensed types and the assemblies that contain these licensed types. At compile time, License Compiler obtains licenses from Measurement Studio, which the .NET language compiler embeds into the assembly as a resource. Refer to Measurement Studio Licensed Class Libraries Behavior for more information on Measurement Studio licenses embedded in assemblies and the behavior of Measurement Studio licensed class libraries.

To ensure Measurement Studio licensed class libraries are properly licensed by License Compiler, the contents of the .licx file must be correct.
