Using CodeMeter Control Center to Create License Request File

Connect the USB dongle you want to license to the USB port on your Windows Computer.

Remember, the dongle carries all the licensing information, the license is only dependent on the dongle. You can license your dongle at any computer and carry it to another one.

Start CodeMeter Control Center

CodeMeter Control Center will be installed via Reality Prerequisites. If you choose not to install Reality Prerequisites, please download CodeMeter. After proper installation, launch the CodeMeter Control Center using the Taskbar or the Start Menu as shown below.

Creating License Request File

The CodeMeter Control Center is launched. If your dongle is detected, it should be listed as shown below. Click on your dongle and then click on the License Update button as shown below.

The number of the dongle is also printed on the metal surface of the USB connector of the dongle. This is your dongle's unique number. Optionally, you can also rename your dongle for better tracking if you like.
