Thanks for Purchasing a New Perpetual BaseHead License!

FYI: ‘Perpetual’ licenses never time out and die like a ‘Subscription’ license will and will keep on working till the end of time.  Well….if you don’t update your OS too much. 8)



All authorization info we need is gathered thru the License Request application (version 4.0) right now.

FYI: We are moving this all to BaseHead soon, but for now use this application till the transition is completed.  8)

Download License Request v4.0 at these links.

USB/iLok and and System bound Users:

Launch License Request and choose the device you want to bind your license to and simply press ‘Copy to Clipboard’ to copy the DeviceSerial code.
You can also ‘Create and XML File’ that can saved off if easier.

Then go to your ‘My Licenses’ page below and click ‘Activate’ on any empty license Container to finish the Activation process.

Either paste in the DeviceSerial code OR select the XML file generated from License Request and press ‘Activate’.

Once the container is successfully activated click the ‘Download’ button to get your .key file.




Then launch BaseHead and click the ‘Register’ button from the Start Screen 




and then in the Offline Activation section drop this .key file  on the button that says…’Drop License .key file HERE!’ and you “should” then get a message your are Authorized and Ready to Rock yo!  😉


CodeMeter CmStick/Network Users: 

If you didn’t install BaseHead yet, do so first or you can install the CodeMeter Runtime a la carte before running this application.
Unfortunately CmSticks can’t be authorized immediately like the above devices, so after your click the CmStick option choose ‘Create File’ and send the file it creates to with your order number from the email that is in your BaseHead, LLC account.  Once we receive it and write the license into your account you will be emailed a notification how to retrieve it.

Important:  CmStick and CM Act users need to install and launch the -CM version from the full installer.
