droplets 1.17

Hello again,

Recently I downloaded the latest krpano version and I have some issues.

A few years ago I've created my own droplets to make virtual tours with the same interface in a fast way.
Every update I did the necessary steps to update this 'generators' :-)

This is how it looks

But now it gives me some troubles.

This is what I did :
a. I used the update tool in 'krpano Tools' to update the directory (so all elements have been updated)
b. I launch the 'droplet'

But at the end of the proces the Terminal gives 2 errors
ERROR: not a valid krpano.swf!
ERROR: calling the kprotectcl tool failed!
(see complete Terminal report at the bottom)

In the result the vtour directory doesn't have a .swf file.
When I put the most recent krpano.swf in the directory and change it into tour.swf it works.

- the generated project works fine but the .swf hasn't been generated..

a- how can I fix this ?
b- what does 'ERROR: calling the kprotectcl tool failed!' mean. Don't know what this kprotectcl exactly does but it looks the doplet can't find it.. How can this be fixed ?

Here you can find the .config file

This is the Terminal report:

in version 1.17 the license system has been changed.

Please see here:

Using the new 1.17 viewer files with the old tools is not possible. The old tools can't know the new license and file formats.

Best regards,
