Requesting a Licence
TUFLOW (all versions, engines, etc) runs using a hardware lock, or dongle, which are from a provider called "Wibu". Its called the Wibu Codemeter Dongle.
To activate the licence on a specific computer with a specific Wibu dongle, a licence request needs to be created. This request is done by the user, with the dongle attached to the computer, using the steps shown below. This creates a file (the .WibuCmRaC file), which is then sent to email@example.com. From there, we update the licence file (to include a specific version, or trial, etc) and return it to you.
New User Steps:
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your purchase request. We will post you a hardware lock (dongle).
- Install codemeter software.
- Create licence file using codemeter software (.WibuCmRaC file).
- Email file to email@example.com. We will update the file with licence information, activating the TUFLOW FV licence.
Existing users wishing to update an existing licence need only complete Steps 2 and 3.
Further detailed information is provided below. We hope this process is straightforward, if you have any problems or comments please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Installing Codemeter Software
Download the Codemeter install exe and run the appropriate exe on each computer wishing to access the dongle: http://www.tuflow.com/FV%20Latest%20Release.aspx . Once installed, a Codemeter icon should appear in the system tray. The icon changes colour and appearance depending on the number of dongles attached to the computer.
- For Local licences, double click on TUFLOW.exe to check that the licensing on the dongle is picked up.
- For Network licences, the Codemeter will need to be setup as a service using the following steps:
- On the machine with the Network dongle attached, click on the Codemeter icon in the system tray to bring up the Codemeter Control Center dialog below.
- The dongle should appear under the License tab.
- Click WebAdmin (WebAdmin may also directly be accessed by right clicking on the Codemeter icon in the system tray). This will open your preferred internet browser and appear something like the below.
- Go to the Configuration tab (see below) and tick “Run Network Server”, then click Apply.
- The network dongle should now be accessible by other computers. Note, the above process only needs to be run on the computer with the network dongle attached.
