So, if you use the evaluation installer or the NuGet feed to reference Syncfusion assemblies, you must also include the corresponding platform and version license key in your projects

You can also obtain a free 30 day evaluation license to temporarily remove this message during the evaluation period. Refer to this help topic for more information.

License Key - Syncfusion License Key is just a string that needs to be registered in your project to avoid licensing warning.
