Using a CodeMeter Server

A so-called single key can hold one license for each GRAPHISOFT product (ARCHICAD, MEP, EcoDesigner STAR, BIMx) and can be used locally. You connect the hardware key to your computer’s USB port or download the software key with License Manager Tool (LMT); if you have the CodeMeter driver installed (it is installed with ARCHICAD), your GRAPHISOFT product will find a license and will run in commercial mode. Each workstation in an office needs to have an individual key.
A network key can hold multiple licenses related to each product (ARCHICAD, MEP, EcoDesigner STAR, BIMx). To share them across multiple computers you need a CodeMeter server. This arrangement provides more flexibility than having individual keys, as the licenses are allocated only when they are being used on one of the clients.
CodeMeter driver must be installed. Click on Tools and Utilities from the start-up screen, or browse your DVD directory for the CODEMETER folder.
Note: There is no need for a server-level operating system for the CodeMeter server. You can use one of the workstations as a CodeMeter server, and you must keep it running during work hours. Any computer that has recent Windows or OS X versions can be used (Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10, and OS X 10.8, 10.9, 10.10).
Do not forget to Apply the changes.
Check Run CmWAN Server checkbox to use the computer in a wide area network (WAN) and allow license accesses.
Do not forget to Apply the changes and restart CodeMeter service.
Note: If the server is public on the Internet, or no one is allowed to use a license, make sure that this list is filled out correctly to avoid unwanted license usage.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Make sure all licenses are returned/expired before you do any of the following:
Note: Start License Manager to see the number of available licenses, including the number of LBRK (for hardware based borrowing) or LBRA (for software license borrowing) products.
Note: To customize all of these settings (Borrowing settings and Server Identification), check the Overwrite Entry Settings box in the License Borrowing interface of the WebAdmin.
