Install the Codemeter runtime software version 5.x on all systems if it wasn't installed with the Installer already.
(New Injector PC and Rehab installers already have it included)
If it's installed already you'll see a little new icon in your system tray that looks like the above image.
Once it's installed plug in the CmStick.

If you double click the system tray icon it will open the Control Center.
This is where you will see what sticks are connected to this system and events and you can update the firmware also from here.
(You will NOT see your licenses here in the Control Center License tab like you'd expect)


The Webadmin is where you actually will see what licenses are on your CmStick
Click the button to launch it from the Control Center and go to Content/Licenses to see your purchased licenses


Since you have a CmStick now you can stop using the demo version....

BaseHead:

  • PC users: Stop using BaseHead.exe and start using BaseHead-CM.exe.

  • Mac users: Stop using "BaseHead Demo" and start using "BaseHead"

Injector: 

  • Stop using Injector Demo.exe and start using Injector.exe

  • If you are running Injector on XP systems you will also need .NET 3.0 or higher installed

Rehab:

  • Stop using Rehab Demo.exe and start using Rehab.exe

  • If you are running Injector on XP systems you will also need .NET 3.0 or higher installed

 

 

Adding a License to an Existing CmStick:
If you already have a CmStick and need to add a license to it that you ordered, then you need to generate us a Context file and send it to us after you purchase your license.
All the info on how to do that is

Once you receive an Update File from us follow these steps:

  • With Version 4 or higher installed you can now easily just double click and run the update file that we send you to apply the new license to your CmStick

  • You can check that it worked by going to the "Web admin" and click the "Licenses" Tab.

 

Steps to setting up Codemeter in a Network Environment

Video Clip Codemeter Setup in a Network Environment  
a walk thru how to set up a dongle on a Windows Home server with a mac client connecting to it

Written Instructions:  

  • Check "Run Network server" on the the Machine with the Dongle from within the Web Admin under Configuration/Network.

  • After turning this on you should probably "Stop" and then "Restart" the Codemeter service from the Control Center.

  • Open the Codemeter Control center on both Machines and click on the "Events" tab to see the activity. 
    When you run a CM version on a client machine you should see activity on the Server machine if they can see each other.

  • If not, you need to tell the Client Machines what I.P. to look for the dongle by getting the ip4 address of the Server and putting into the list on the Client machines.

 

This is all done from the Webadmin.
Go to Configuration/Network to enter the I.P. address in Server Search List if it's not finding the stick on the network automatically. Watching the above video is probably easier......8)

How to Remove the CmStick from showing up as a drive?
First off you'll need a CmStick with a serial number of 2-xxx
Then Install the Codemeter Runtime 5.0 or higher from the website
http://codemeter.com/us/service/downloads.html 

Then upgrade the firmware to 2.02 or higher from the codemeter control center.

Windows: 
open a command prompt and cd into the directory where the cmu32.exe is.  Usually 
cd C:\Program Files (x86)\CodeMeter\Runtime\bin
Then type cmu32.exe --set-config-disk HidCommunication --serial 2-1356285
but use your serial number instead!!
Then unplug the dongle and re-plug it in to no longer see it in Explorer as storage but instead it's a HID USB device now

Mac: 
open terminal and type
cmu --set-config-disk HidCommunication --serial 2-1356285
but use your serial number instead!!
Then unplug the dongle and re-plug it in to no longer see it in Finder as a volume but instead it's a HID USB device now.
