by Gábor Almási · updated: 06.08.2016

In case of having problems with your CodeMeter software protection first check the error code ARCHICAD gives here. If you could not find the solution there, please contact your reseller with a detailed description of the error and attach the following details:

If the problem is related to license borrowing, create both (cmdust.log and Keyplug Info) on the borrow client and on the borrow server computer as well.

Keyplug info

Open in your browser and click on ‘Send Keyplug Info’. All necessary information about your keyplug will be opened in your default email client.
{i} Use Safari on Mac and Internet Explorer on Windows if the site does not open in your browser.

CmDust log

Using CmDust you can create detailed logs including the driver’s settings and information about the connected keys. To create a log please run the following command:

  • On Mac: in a terminal window type:
cmu --cmdust > ~/CmDust.log
  • On PC: run Start/All Programs/Codemeter/Tools/CmDust

On both platform a result file will be a file named CmDust .log in the userhome folder.

Java console
