Free version of "StarWind Tape Redirector" and "Device Type is not licensed"

Hi,

I am on the path of evaluating the "StarWind Tape Redirector" and registered for the download. In the subsequent email, I got the license file as "StarWind_Tape_Redirector_Free_License_Key.swk" file through registered email.

I downloaded the StarWind Tape Redirector (which is now part of a free version of StarWind Virtual SAN) from the link http://starwindsoftware.com/tmplink/starwind-v8.exe and installed both FULL version and "VTL & Cloud redirector". I applied the provided license.

When I try to a VTL as:
StarWind MMC >> Add Device (advanced) >> Select Tape Device >> Select the Virtual Tape item >> Next >> Error >> "Device Type is not licensed, you are using free License. Contact Support"

I am wondering if "StarWind Tape Redirector" is free to use or not?

Prashant,

You are trying to use Virtual Tape Library (VTL), which is not Tape Redirector. Please contact Sales for the key with VTL enabled.
