How to delete/clear the Publisher License

Hi I have to delete/clear a publisher license. I can see that the Server license tab has an option called "CLEAR LICENSE" , but that is not present in the publisher license.

I tried to manually delete the Publisher Lef after stopping the QDS and QMC (only these two are present in the PUB Server).

But the License just does'nt seem to get cleared and the Publisher Lef appears again the server .

Any suggestions ?

Have you tried like?

Remove Serial number and LEF information, -> 'Apply License'

Try deleting the file that stores the information.

The Publisher license is contained in a file called PubLef.txt, located in C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Publisher\CommandCenter\Publisher LEF (or C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\QlikTech\Publisher\CommandCenter\Publisher LEF on older operating systems). Stop all services, delete this file, and then start all services again and the Publisher license should disappear from QMC.

Still when i start the services again the lef file gets auto generated along with the license information.
