We have a temporary problem on our system with the license on a new Tridion 2013 SP1 installation. The error we receive is:

Can not continue due to license violation. The number of named users in your system (1) exceeds the limit specified in the license: 1.

I saw this is a known issue and until we get the proper license, I wanted to quickly fix this with Hotfix 87411. I downloaded the cummulative hotfix 87899 (that includes 87411) from SDL Tridion World and in readme.txt it says:

Remove the file Tridion.ContentManager.dll located in the %WINDIR%\assembly\GAC_MSIL\Tridion.ContentManager\ folder

However, I cannot find Tridion.ContentManager.dll anywhere in GAC.

Does anybody know how to apply this hotfix? Note that we cannot install the whole HR1 yet due to some other issues.

Thank you.

    Did you report this issue in the hotfix readme to customer support? May 29, 2015 at 14:35
  • @Bart Koopman, I created a ticket for SDL saying the same thing under client's account. Let me know if that is what you meant. Jun 3, 2015 at 20:35

You probably be looking at wrong path of GAC. Can you try finding the DLL at below path:
