LightAct licenses can be installed on your computer or on a dongle and it is up to you to decide which works best for you.
- if you decide to have it installed on your computer all you need to do is send us a license update request and we will send you the update file. This needs to happen after you’ve purchased your license, but you don’t need to purchase anything else beside the license itself.
- if you, on the other hand, decide to have it installed on a dongle you can purchase the dongle and we will install the license on the dongle before shipping it to you. However, if you already own the dongle, you just send us the license update request file and we will send you the license update file.
Requesting a license update
Unless you ordered your license with a dongle, you need to send us a license update request file.
To do that, launch CodeMeter Control Center.
When it opens, you will see all CodeMeter containers present on your system. This should include the container with LightAct trial license, any LightAct dongle you have plugged in as well as CodeMeter containers installed by other manufacturers.
A container is a CodeMeter entity that can ‘contain’ one or several licenses from one or several providers.
Next step depends on where you want to install your license: on your computer, on a LightAct dongle or on a CodeMeter dongle provided by another provider.
Option 1: Installing the license on your computer
If you want to install the license on your computer, select the container with LightAct trial license. This container is created when you first installed LightAct trial on your computer. To be sure you selected the correct one, you may want to disconnect all LightAct dongles from your computer. If you choose this option, license will be bound to your computer and you won’t be able to move it between computers easily.
Option 2: Installing the license on a LightAct dongle
if you want to install the license on a LightAct dongle, select that dongle.
Option 3: Installing the license on a CodeMeter dongle from other providers
LightAct is not the only company using CodeMeter dongles. This means you can install LightAct licenses on CodeMeter dongles provided by other manufacturers as long as its serial number is larger than 3-344..
After you’ve selected the container, click on License Update button.
Select Create license request and click on Next.
If you are installing the license on your computer (Option 1) or on LightAct dongle (Option 2), select Extend existing license and click on Next.
If you are installing the license on a 3rd party dongle (Option 3), click on Add license of a new vendor and click on Next.
If you are installing the license on your computer (Option 1) or on LightAct dongle (Option 2), select VISIBLE d.o.o. as the vendor and click on Next.
If you are installing the license on a 3rd party dongle (Option 3), insert our company’s firm code 6001083 and click on Next.
Save the .WibuCmRaC file and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ll send back the License update file which you can import by selecting Import license update.
