License eFORMz on an AS/400 (iSeries) system

For step-by-step instructions, view the following post:

To license Minisoft eFORMz on an AS/400 (iSeries) system, an unsigned license file will need to be created. The creating of the license file will occur if the system is not currently licensed. A download and activation will not be needed if it is currently licensed. After installing eFORMz on the iSeries, please run the following QShell commands:

> cd /minisoft
> /QOpenSys/QIBM/ProdData/JavaVM/jdk80/64bit/bin/java -jar Run.jar - com.minisoft.Check
Check - eFORMz, version ##.##.##
Check - Licensed to *, eDIRECT PLUS Enabled

The file /minisoft/eFORMz.xml will be created with the system specific information needed. Download this file and sent it to us for activation.

Use a version of Java 8 (or later) that exists on the system. 

You might receive the following error when you run the license check if Java 8 or later is unavailable:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: 
   JVMCFRE003 bad major version; class=com/minisoft/Run/Run, offset=6
