nope, the licence ID is not encoded in the licence.

(from an earlier reply by Clemens: http://www.globalphasing.com/pipermail/sharp-discuss/2006-September/001790.html)

what happens is most likely one of these:

 - you're trying to run on a machine for whihc you have no valid
   licence key: please request a renewal or an additional licence key
   (at httpd://www.globalphasing.com/sharp/)

 - you've edited/changed the .licence file that was sent to you
   (e.g. changing/deleting lines starting with a hash '#' - although
   they look like comments they're not).

 - the .licence file got corrupted (e.g. when reading emails on a
   Windows box, saving the attachement and cut-n-pasteing it over to

Hope this helps,
