1. Update your license information hitting on the "Update License from Server" button or updating the LEF file if you do not have internet. So, the new LEF information is extracted for your new maintenance contract. If QlikView Publisher is licensed, be sure to apply the Publisher license as well. Afterwards, restart the QlikView services.NOTE:
Be sure to check the Publisher license key as well. If the Publisher LEF has expired it will also display the orange banner. You will need to update License as well.
If your have not renew your maintenance contract this is expected and working as designed.
