You need to buy a KRE subscription.

I purchased it on Friday

Hi @pgonzalez,

Please make sure you have already followed all steps in this tutorial to activate KRE offline.


My KRE licence is a Katalon Runtime Engine (DevOps). Do I need an offline licence to run in CLI mode? Thanks

Hi @pgonzalez

If you purchased a DevOps license, then you must use Docker or Azure DevOps to execute tests.

Since you mentioned

This requires a node-locked KRE license which (I assume) you don’t have, hence the error.
