The license file contains details such as the product name, number of developers it is licensed to, subscription expiry date and so on. It contains digital signature, so don't modify the file. Even inadvertent addition of an extra line break into the file will invalidate it. You need to set a license before utilizing *GroupDocs.Editor API* if you want to avoid its evaluation limitations.
