"--license" is not a valid option

Post by Yamigishi »

Hello,

I just purchased a 1 year license, and tried to activate it. I'm running filebot on a Ubuntu VPS, so I don't have a way to do it using the GUI, only the good old command line.

My problem, however, is that when I try to do `

Code: Select all

filebot --license /path/to/license
`, i get the following error:
`

Code: Select all

"--license" is not a valid option
`

I also tried to do it with -license instead of --license, but same error.

I'm running

Code: Select all

FileBot 4.7.9 (r4984) / OpenJDK Runtime Environment 1.8.0_242 / Linux 4.15.0-88-generic (amd64)

FileBot 4.7.9 is 3+ years outdated and mostly doesn't work anymore.

:arrow: Please use the latest release, i.e. FileBot 4.8.5 or above.
