upgrading from Jira 6 to Jira 7 new license page

I am having difficulty installing my new license for JIRA into the program

At first I could not get it to recognize my login but I added the startup parameter it suggested and fixed that.

-Dnon.admin.upgrade=true

Now I am getting an error:

 

setLicense called with illegal ValidationResult object
java.lang.IllegalStateException: setLicense called with illegal ValidationResult object
	at com.atlassian.jira.bc.license.JiraLicenseServiceImpl.setLicense(JiraLicenseServiceImpl.java:171) [classes/:?]

My workaround:

 

I've started a 30 days demo and then replaced licence

Thanks, this worked for me too.

Choose the option to stick with "Evaluation License" until you can actually get to your dashboard - then worry about putting in your official license.

I am also seeing a problem like this. Including a fragment of my log ....
