No license for domain 'localhost' was found

Andre Pfanz asked on August 9, 2019 20:05

We purchased a license for Kentico 12, and I've been upgrading the site locally from v11 to v12. When I try to run the site on v12 and try to delete the old license for v11 in the admin area, I get this message

 No license for domain 'localhost' was found

If I try to add the license for v12, I get this message

 The license key with code name 'xxxxxx' already exists.

I did notice this error in the event log as I was trying to delete the v11 license:

Does anyone have any ideas?

Try this: Delete all of your licenses out of the system. Then add back in the correct v12 one. From there check the Sites app to make sure you have the main domain as localhost or a Domain alias for the current site you are working.

I had to delete the existing license out of the license table. That resolved the issue.
