Can LiteSpeed Extractor Utilities be executed on a server without the LiteSpeed engine or license key installed?
Copy the extractor utility Extractor.exe to a server that does not have the LiteSpeed engine installed:
Copy the C:\Program Files\Imceda\LiteSpeed\SQL Server\Extractor.exe(or C:\Program Files\Quest Software\LiteSpeed\SQL Server in later versions)from an existing LiteSpeed Installation to any server and double click to run it.The fullLiteSpeed engine does not need to be installed on the same server.
If the following message appears during the extraction process: Warning: Trace: Failed to open registry key., please create the following key in the registry.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Imceda\SQLLiteSpeed\Engine (no values need to exist in the key, just the key itself)
Note:The bit version of the extractor must match the SQL Server (-32 bit extractor on 32 bit SQL Server, 64 bit on 64 bit SQL Server).
Similarly to LiteSpeed, the version of the extractor must be equal or greater than the version that created the backup file.
For additional information regarding the LiteSpeed Extractor Utility, please see the LiteSpeed Help file.
