    Additional licensing details

    No internet connection

    For machines that do not have direct internet access, an intermediate machine is used to exchange the necessary files with our licensing portal to activate and update the licence. No software is required to be installed on the intermediate machine. Please contact for guidance on this approach if needed. 

    Confirming your dongle is recognised

    On rare occasions, there is a fault on the licensing hardware and the dongle is not recognised. 

    Open CodeMeter Control Center and in the License tab, you should see at least one entry like the one shown here. If you can see this entry, your dongle is working as expected.

    If the dongle does not appear in the CodeMeter Control Center, try the troubleshooting options below. After each option below, check CodeMeter Control Center again to see if the dongle is now recognised.

    1. Try another USB port
    2. Reboot the machine
    3. Restart the CodeMeter service via the CodeMeter Control Center:
      • Go to Process > Restart CodeMeter Service; or
      • Go to Process > Stop CodeMeter Service. Then Process > Start CodeMeter Service.

    If the above options fail consistently for each available USB port, please contact us at
