If your machine cannot be connected to the internet, you still can perform an offline activation. Therefore, create a license request file that allows you to perform the license activation on another machine that is connected to the internet. Copy back the resulting license update file to activate your license offline.
See the following step-by-step instructions for a detailed description of the process:
1. Create a license request file
Download KeepTool.WibuCmLif.zip and unzip the KeepTool.WibuCmLif file.
From the Windows system tray, run CodeMeter Control Center and drag-drop the KeepTool.WibuCmLif file into the CodeMeter Control Center window.
This creates a new empty “KeepTool” license container.
Select the “KeepTool” container and click “License Update“ . That runs the CmFAS wizard. Click “Continue” to show this dialog:
Select the first item “Create license request” and click “Next” to create the license request file.
After that, the system shows a confirmation dialog:
2. Copy license request file to another computer
Copy the license request file to a another computer that is connected to the internet.
3. Create a license update file
This step is similar to the online licensing process. Open WebDepot using the URL we sent you by email.
Click the button “I would like to transfer my licenses to a computer (CmActLicense)”. This shows the following dialog.
Click the “File-based license transfer” hyperlink in the lower right of the dialog.
It opens a dialog wizard showing information about the next steps.
Fortunately, steps 1 to 3 already have been performed. Just upload the license request file and click the button “Request now and continue”. As a result, WebDepot generates a license update file (*.WibuCmRaU).
Click the “Finish” button and download the file.
4. Copy back license update file
Copy back the license update file to your original machine that cannot be connected to the internet.
5. Perform license update by file
Run again the CodeMeter Control Center from the system tray, select the “KeepTool” license container, and click “License Update”.
In the CmFAS Assistant, select the second option “Import license update”.
Click “Next”. Now you are prompted for uploading the license update file.
Finally, click “Commit” to activate the license.
6. License update acknowledgement
Now you can run KeepTool software on the computer. To confirm the success of the license transfer to WebDepot, run again CodeMeter Control Center.
Select the “KeepTool” license container and click “License Update”. Choose the “Generate Receipt” option to create a *.WibuCmRac file. Copy the file to a computer that is connected to the internet and run again WebDepot. Click “Upload receipt now”. This completes the offline licensing process.
