Information about the possibilities of the licence coupling
GGU software is provided with the WIBU-Systems CodeMeter software protection system. CodeMeter is a license and digital rights management system with a secure, online licence purchase option.
To be able to work with the GGU programs,
- the licence driver software, the CodeMeter-Runtime Kit for Windows, must be installed on all PCs and
- the licences coupled with a CmStick or a CmActLicense on a PC.
The CmStick represents the CodeMeter system's hardware. It contains a chip on which the CodeMeter system licences are stored. A CmActLicense is a type of licence that does away with special hardware components. The CmActLicense is based on a signed and encoded licence file.
We describe the two possible licence coupling options below.
The GGU-Software licences are linked to a USB dongle, the WIBU-Systems CmStick. Therefore, before you can work with GGU-Software programs, such a CmStick must be available in your company.
This licence coupling is intended for floating network licences (FNL) and for stand-alone licences with changing PC usage. The CmStick must be plugged into a PC or server that is constantly in operation. Alternatively, the CmStick can also be plugged into a dongle server located within your network. The SEH DongleServer Pro or dongleserver ProMAX is suitable, for example.
This licence coupling is particularly suitable if several employees in your company need to work with the GGU programs in alternation.
No CmStick is required for this software-based licence. The CmActLicense is linked to the respective PC hardware. This licence coupling is only available for non-network licences (NNL). The use of a CmActLicense in connection with virtualisation software (virtual PCs/servers) is excluded.
- immediate use after licence coupling is complete
- forwarding the license by returning it to the online license ticket system with subsequent coupling to a different PC
We would be pleased to advise you in a telephone call which license coupling and license type makes sense for you.
