Set Environment Variable
You can set a License Key as an environment variable. There are two environment variables available for Address Object: MD_LICENSE and MD_LICENSE_DEMO. These environment variables were made available so that you can change certain aspects of your applications without recompiling. You can set these both MD_LICENSE and MD_LICENSE_DEMO as environment variables at same time. If you are using variable MD_LICENSE for any other product then you can use MD_LICENSE_DEMO for Address Object or vice versa. Don't get confused with the word "DEMO" for a valid License Key, it works same as MD_LICENSE.
