    Not able to remove "Flex Data Visualization Trial" watermark




      I am not able to remove "Flex Data Visualization Trial" watermark. This watermark comes on the screen when I am trying to use the datavisualization components, eg. advanceddatagrid. Though I have flex builder professional license. How we can remove this watermark? Please help me to get out of this problem.


      Thanks and Regards,

          Hi Ravindra,


          Please try the following steps pulled from the Flash Builder Release Notes:


          Using Flex Datavisualization with Flash Builder 4

          The Flex data visualization features will continue to work with Flex SDK 3.4 and Flex SDK 4 projects in Flash Builder 4. But enabling data visualization features requires additional steps post install.


          The serial key you enter into the Flash Builder 4 (Beta) serial key dialog will not remove the watermarks from the data visualization components. A valid Flex Builder 3 Professional key is required to remove watermarks from data visualization components. Use the instructions at http://livedocs.adobe.com/flex/3/html/help.html?content=configuring_environment_2.html  to setup  Flex Builder 3 licensing by either editing the license.properties or the flex-config.xml file.


          You need to manually run the java based extraction command to extract the data visualization sources from the file DMV-source.jar file. This file is located in the SDK's lib directory. In Flash Builder 4, the lib directory is located at {Flash Builder 4}\sdks\3.4.0\lib or the corresponding 4.0.0 SDK.


          The syntax to extract the data visualization source code is as follows: java -jar DMV-source.jar {license-file-location} {output-location}The first argument is the location of the license.properties file. This file must contain a valid Flex Builder 3 Professional license key. The location for the for the extracted source is specified with the second parameter.

            The only way I could remove the watermark was by doing the following:


            Update license.properties file

            Update flex-config.xml in the SDK/features folder (not sure if this helped)

            Add the following to the compiler under project-->properites --> Flex Compiler

            add this to additional compiler arguments:



            I can remove this and it still seems to be working.
