Error after upgrade to SCSM 2016: Unable to determine Cireson Licensing Client version

Hi everybody,

I am preparing my SCSM 2012 R2 enviroment for upgrading to SCSM 2016. I have installed a laboratory with productive data and I did all steps suggested by Microsoft. After check all, I installed Cireson 2016. Then I have started upgrading components from 2012 to 2016 o his last version.

In SCSM Console, in Settings, all settings are accessible and I can configure them except one "Cireson - Console App Licensing". If I open it in console, SCSM console crashes. Lg file shows the error wrote in the last part.

I have copied .dll and the management pack version to Cireson Console App Licensing is 7.10.2016.8

any idea how I can resolve it please? many thanks

    Hi Wolfgang,

    It looks like you extracted the contents of the zip file containing the licensing app without unblocking it first. This has marked any executables extracted from the zip file as unsafe.

    Open a PowerShell prompt on the server. Run these commands:

    cd "C:\Program Files\Microsoft System Center 2012 R2\Service Manager"
    gci *.dll -Recurse | Unblock-File
