LICENSING SETUP

Allowing all users on a computer to use the same ‘System Locked’ licence:

A System Locked license is locked to the specific computer it is installed and activated on. Users can manage their license via the LightBurn Help/License Activation menu. Licenses can be activated or de-activated as required.

Windows

1: Update to the latest version of LightBurn and make sure it’s installed and licensed as normal

2: Open up a command prompt by:

Click Start menu, then type ‘CMD’ and windows will auto-complete,
right click it, run as Administrator.

3: Type the following into the command prompt:

CD “c:\program files\LightBurn”

4: Next, type the following into the command prompt:

LightBurn -l <license key code here>

Once done, any user who uses that machine will be able to run LB without entering license.

Mac

1: Start a ‘Terminal’.

2: Type the following:

cd /Applications/LightBurn.app/Contents/MacOS

sudo ./LightBurn -l (license key)

NOTE: That last command is sudo ./LightBurn -(lower case L) (license key)

Once done, any user who uses that machine will be able to run LB without entering license

How to install a ‘Floating’ license

A floating license is managed by the LightBurn license management server. This allows the license to be allocated when a LightBurn session is started and then released when the LightBurn session is closed. Typically this is used by customers who have many users needing to use LightBurn at the one time. Please contact us via email if you would like to lean more about Floating License options.

Network Restrictions

LightBurn will need to communicate with the external license server to verify licenses. If you are experiencing difficulties with a license not being verified, your network may be restricting this.

Please ensure the following is setup on your network:

Whitelist api.cryptlex.com for port 443
