      Description

      Repro Path:
      1. Had an existing Installation of 4.5 with valid license keys from the Dev Licenses machine (image attached)
      2. Ran PDI EE Installer - during installation I got a warning/error that Eval lics were not granted (image attached)
      3. Upon completion of the installer, my valid licenses were blown away (image attached)

        This is 2 different correctly working items that make it look like an error in your situation.

        1. The installer creates a new location for which licenses will be found for that instance.

        2. The installer looks at a system location to determine if eval licenses have been generated before ... and if they have, new eval licenses will not be issued.

        If you run the old instance of PDI, you will still see valid licenses ... but the new install location started with fresh licenses and could not generate new evals.
