Lost license


I have a BPS ver installed about a year ago. The server crashed few days ago, I had to restore everything from backup, Software seems to be fine but database was lost.

I created a new database for BPS and applied additional license I found so now I have 2 users connected. But before server crashed I had 3 users on BPS and now I cannot find that additional license. Also company that sold us a license is closed down so I cannot get the copy of license from them.

Any idea where I could find that license?

I beleve current version (BES express) has more free licenses - can I use that somehow?

if the database is gone and no backup you don have much choice to either get a license for about 99 USD or upgrade to BES express.
