LightAct licenses can be installed on your computer or on a dongle and it is up to you to decide which works best for you.

Installing the license on a computer

When you install a license on a computer it means that during the installation process a precise identification of your computer is generated based on its hardware specifications. The license is locked to this particular computer, so it cannot be used on any other computer. We call these licenses computer-bound. 

The advantage of computer-bound licenses is that you don’t need to purchase a dongle. Usually you also get it on the same day as the date of the purchase.

Installing the license on dongle

If you purchase LightAct dongle together with a license, we will install it on your dongle before shipping, so you won’t need to do anything.

However, if you already have LightAct dongle or any other CodeMeter dongle with a serial number larger than 3-344…, then click on the button below to learn how to install LightAct license on it.

Transferring licenses

It is possible to transfer a license between computer and/or dongles, but it is a manual process which we charge a small fee for.

Please contact us if you’d like to transfer your computer-bound license.
