If you are enforcing FIPS Certified Cryptography (Federal Information Processing Standards) on the machine running SQList, you will get this licence validation error: 

"This implementation is not part of the Windows Platform FIPS validated cryptographic algorithms"

To fix this error, use a plain text editor (e.g. Notepad) and add the enforceFIPSPolicy tag to SQList  configuration files as follow:

  1. Close SQList Manager;
  2. using the editor, open the file AxioWorks.SQList.ManagerDesktop.exe.config located in the folder C:\Program Files\AxioWorks\SQList;
  3. locate the line containing the tag <runtime>;
  4. immediately under that line add the line <enforceFIPSPolicy enabled="false"/>;
  5. save and close the file;
  6. repeat steps 2 to 5 for the file AxioWorks.SQList.ReplicationService.exe.config located in the same folder;
  7. Start SQList.

The section in the files should look like this after the changes:

    <enforceFIPSPolicy enabled="false"/>
    <assemblyBinding xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1"> ...
