Well, the license file is a plain XML file and you have to deliver the license file with the application to clients as without a license (also setting the license in your cards), the component will run in evaluation mode (in limitations) and cannot perform the tasks in full capacity.
The license file (.lic) file is not copied, while publishing the application in the deployment process. So, you would require to manually copy the license file to the target server. If you need the underlying license file should be deployed during the publishing process, well, I think as a workaround, you can try to rename the license file i.e., “Aspose.Cells.lic” to “AsposeCells.txt” (but never change the contents of the license file least it won’t work anymore) and change your licensing code as follows (you may also set the license as embbedded resource if you want):
Aspose.Cells.License lic = new Aspose.Cells.License();
where “licfile” contains the string path of “AsposeCells.txt”.
Now, when you deploy the application, the license file is also copied with the application.
And, for your other doubts, please contact Aspose.
