Installing SAP Java License without Visual Admin

Hi All,

I installed a stand alone SAP Java instance a couple of months ago and the temp license key has expired.

I have applied for a perm license key, which I now have.

Here is my main issue:

1. The JControl service will not start because it "failed license check"

2. The Java VM won't start because of issue "1".

3. I can't start the Visual Admin tool because of issue "2".

Hope that all makes sense :-s

Main Question:

Does anyone know how to install my new license WITHOUT using the Visual Admin tool?

Thanks to anyone who responds.

PS: I do credit responses if they are helpful

    after the license expired, you can restart your AS JAVA instance for 30 Minutes. After this time, the instance will shut down.

    You have 30 to get the instance up, log in to the VA and apply the license.
