Is my CodeMeter license still valid?

The solution is split up, depending on how the CodeMeter dongle is used

Procedure: CodeMeter dongle is directly on your computer

2 properties (=: the expiration time and the version number) of the license must be valid for the software to find it.

  1. Open CodeMeter Control Center using Start > All Programs > CodeMeter.
    I cannot find CodeMeter Control Center in 'All Programs'

    Then it is probably not installed. Download CodeMeter Control Center and install it.

  2. Select the dongle (‘Cm-Stick’ + a number starting with ‘1-‘, ‘2-‘ or ‘3-‘). Click. The internet page that opens, is called ‘WebAdmin’.
    I don't see the dongle in the list

    • Plug the donlge directly into the server, don’t use a hub.
    • Unplug the dongle from the server and plug it back in. If necessary, try a different USB port.

  3. Check the expiration time.
    • On the internet page ‘WebAdmin’
    • Find the relvant row:
      • For Diamonds: look in the row ‘1 Diamonds 2D bars’
      • For BIM Expert: look in the row ’50 BIM Expert Basic’
      • For ConCrete: look in the row ‘101 ConCrete’
      • For PowerConnect: look in the row ‘104 PowerConnect’
      • For 12 Build : look in the row ‘105 1.2.Build’
    • In the relevant row: the column Valid until should contain n/a (= short for Not Available) or a date in the future for the license to be valid.
      If the date is in the past, the license has expired and is no longer valid.

    The license is expired

    This can have two causes:

    • either you didn’t execute the last upgrade file(s).
      Check your mailbox for emails containing an *.WibuCmRaU-file send by inge.vanhaudenhuyze@buildsoft.eu. Download the file to the desktop of the server and double click it. It is possible you’ve missed a few of those files.
    • or we didn’t receive the payment of your invoice.
      Contact Support

  4. Check the version number
    • In the same relevant row as in STEP 3: the column Feature map should contain the code corresponding to the version you’d like to use.
      For example: if you want to start Diamonds 2019, the ‘Feature map’ should be ‘0x7ff’.
    The version number on the dongle doesn't correspond to the Diamonds version

    This can have two causes:

    • either you didn’t execute the last upgrade file(s).
      Check your mailbox for emails containing an *.WibuCmRaU-file send by inge.vanhaudenhuyze@buildsoft.eu. Download the file to the desktop of the server and double click it. It is possible you’ve missed a few of those files.
    • or we didn’t receive the payment of your invoice.

    Diamonds, PowerConnect, BIM Expert Content of the ‘Feature Map’
    2015 0xff
    2017 0x1ff
    2018 0x3ff
    2019 0x7ff
    2020 0xfff
    ConCrete, 1.2.Build Content of the ‘Feature Map’
    Concrete: < v8.0
    1.2.Build: < v2.0
    0x1
    Concrete: ≥ v8.0
    1.2.Build: ≥ v2.0
    0x3

Procedure: CodeMeter dongle is directly on the server

Three properties (= the expiration time, the version number and the availability) of the license must be valid and the lisence must be shared for the software to find it.

  1. Open CodeMeter Control Center using Start > All Programs > CodeMeteron your local computer. It is not necessary to do this on the server.
    I cannot find CodeMeter Control Center in 'All Programs'

    Then it is probably not installed. Download CodeMeter Control Center and install it.

  2. Click. The internet page that opens, is called ‘WebAdmin’.
  3. Click on ‘Current Server: localhost‘ at the bottom of the page and select the server from the list. Hit Apply.
  4. Check if the license is shared. On the internet page ‘WebAdmin’:
    • Go to Container > All container > select the dongle (‘Cm-Stick’ + a number starting with ‘1-‘, ‘2-‘ or ‘3-‘).
    • Go to Configuration > Server > Server Access.
      Network Server should be Enabled.
      If not, select it and hit Apply,
    • Go to Configuration > Server > License Access Permissions.
      The Mode should be on Basic and the Basic Mode Configuration list should be empty.

    Network Server is disabled or the Basic Mode Configuration list is not empty

    Select ‘Enable’ and hit ‘Apply’.

  5. Check the expiration time.
    • On the internet page ‘WebAdmin’
    • Find the relvant row:
      • For Diamonds: look in the row ‘1 Diamonds 2D bars’
      • For BIM Expert: look in the row ’50 BIM Expert Basic’
      • For ConCrete: look in the row ‘101 ConCrete’
      • For PowerConnect: look in the row ‘104 PowerConnect’
      • For 12 Build : look in the row ‘105 1.2.Build’
    • In the relevant row: the column Valid until should contain n/a (= short for Not Available) or a date in the future.

    The license is expired

    This can have two causes:

    • either you didn’t execute the last upgrade file(s).
      Check your mailbox for emails containing an *.WibuCmRaU-file send by inge.vanhaudenhuyze@buildsoft.eu. Download the file to the desktop of the server and double click it. It is possible you’ve missed a few of those files.
    • or we didn’t receive the payment of your invoice.

  6. Check the version number.
    • In the same relevant row as in STEP 5: the column Feature map should contain the code corresponding to the version you’d like to use.
      For example: if you want to start Diamonds 2019, the ‘Feature map’ should be ‘0x7ff’.
    The version number on the dongle doesn't correspond to the Diamonds version

  7. Check if there is a free license. On the internet page ‘WebAdmin:

    The column Available contains the number 0

    Click on the garbage can at the end of the row to release the license.
