Duende Native encryption is based upon ‘Codemeter’, a system supplied by ‘WIBU Systems’. This system is also used by other audio industry products including Magix ‘Seqouia’, Propellerheads ‘Record’ and Algorithmix plug-ins.
The Codemeter system supports two different types of copy protection device (dongle); a software only virtual device and a USB hardware device (much like an iLok or any other USB dongle). WIBU refer to both of these devices as a ‘Codemeter Stick’ or ‘CmStick’. They call the software only virtual device a ‘CmAct’ and they call the USB hardware device a ‘Codemeter’. The activation of Licences is handled by our online Licence administration interface, the SSL Online Licence Centre.
Note: Java is required for use of the SSL Online Licence Centre
When you arrive at the SSL Online Licence Centre you see this interface:
Plug-in Activation requires the computer on which you have installed your SSL software to be connected to the internet. The generation of your individual Product Licence(s) takes place automatically over the internet. Your computer is profiled and your Product Licence(s) are created and activated on your computer automatically by the SSL Online Licence Centre communicating over the internet with the SSL software installed on your computer.
Note: There is no activation method available that does not require access to the internet and communication with the SSL Online Licence Centre.
Under the heading ‘Your Licences’ you can see a list of all of the Licences available for activation. The content of this list will depend upon which products you have purchased Licences for (or demo Licences you are eligible for).
1. Select the copy protection device which you would like to activate the Software for
2. Activate your Plug-in Licences
You have two choices; you can either activate all of your Plug-in Licences in a single operation or you can activate them individually
The Licence De-Activation mechanism is provided to enable users to move their Licence from a software only CmAct virtual dongle to a Codemeter hardware dongle. The mechanism can also be used during system upgrades/recovery where you need to replace a major computer hardware component (CPU, Motherboard, HD etc). In both scenarios the process is the same; you must De-Activate your current Licences because they are specific to both your Dongle type and your computer hardware configuration. When you have De-Activated a Licence you will find that it’s status on your My Products page changes from ‘Activated’ to ‘Activate’. To Re-Activate a Licence on your new dongle or on your new computer simply hit the ‘Activate’ link and follow the instructions. Note you are limited to a total of three De-Activations per plug-in, the mechanism cannot be used as a method of regular Licence transferral between computers.
