Pinned topic Visual Studio Add-In stopped working with licensing problem

‏2013-03-11T21:32:50Z |
I've been successfully using DS 3.2 and Visual Studio 2012 since the release of the VS 2012 addin. Today it suddenly stopped working with the error

ERROR 42968 IBM SQL1598N An attempt to connect to the database server failed because of a licensing problem. SQLSTATE=42968

In the past this has indicated a DB2Connect license issue, so I ran the DB2Licm -l to check if a trial license of some sort had expired and I show the following license information.

C:\Program Files\IBM\SQLLIB\BIN>db2licm -l
Product name: "DB2 Connect Personal Edition"
Product identifier: "db2conpe"
Version information: "10.1"

Other developers who have not upgraded to DS 3.2 and are still using the 9.7 drivers see extra lines indicating license Type & expiry date

C:\Program Files\IBM\SQLLIB\BIN>db2licm -l
Product name: "DB2 Connect Personal Edition"
License Type: "Client Device"
Expiry date "Permanent"
Product identifier: "db2conpe"
Version information: "9.7"

My systems guy is using DS 3.2 but is using the 9.7 license.

What is the correct resolution for this.

This is urgent as I'm unable to make important production changes, so a quick response is appreciated.
