1. Download and install the CodeMeter Runtime from here. When installing, select all options.

2. After installation, open CodeMeter Control Center from the Windows start menu search section or from its icon in the taskbar:

If needed, you can also browse for it in the Windows Explorer: C:\Program Files (x86)\CodeMeter\Runtime\bin\CodeMeterCC.exe.

At this step, there is no CmContainer available:

3. Use the .LIF file that was emailed to you by NorPix, and save it on your computer. Then simply drag and drop the file into the CodeMeter Control Center window.
A message for successful import is displayed:

4. Now, an empty license container has been made available in the CodeMeter Control Center window:

This container needs to be activated. For this, press the License Update button, which will start the following wizard:

Press "Next" and on the second page, select "Create license request":

Press "Next" and the following page appears, which will show the path where the WibuCmRaC file will be generated:

7. Copy the new WibuCmRaU file on your computer and simply drag and drop it into the CodeMeter Control Center window:

Click on the "0" link under the "Product Code" label. It opens up the "Product Item Details" page, which is similar to the page below. The Value field is actually ASCII code for the software serial number ("0x59,0x31,0x32,0x33,0x34"), "Y1234" in that example:

9. The last step is to activate the license of the software product. Follow these steps:

  • Locate the "SysInfo" application in the Start menu > NorPix and launch it.
  • Click on [Browse for authorization codes file...].
  • Select the .NPX file received and click on [Open].
  • The .NPX file name should matche the serial number shown on the "Product Item Details" page.
