There are stored several times on each CmStick. They guarantee a regular and safe use of time restricted software licenses. The meaning of the different times and their behaviour are described on this page. The current times of your CmStick can be found in the WebAdmin on the page Contents.
Due to security reasons a Certified Time not older than seven days is necessary to be able to transfer a license over the internet (e.g. from the CodeMeter Onlineshop http://codemeter.com/us). Therefore in this case the Certified Time is updated automatically.
If the computer time was set to the future (e.g. to January 2009) licenses with time restriction (e.g. December 2008) can no longer be used, since the Box Time is automatically synchronised on plug-in of the CmStick. In such a case only an update of the Certified Time can set the Box Time back to the correct value. Afterwards you will again be able to use the license.
The update of the time can be triggered manually in the WebAdmin on the page Contents by pressing "Update".
If a CmStick is lost or stolen it can be locked by WIBU-SYSTEMS. The locking of the CmStick is placed on the Timeserver and transferred to the CmStick when the CmSticks tries to update the Certified Time. To be able to use this security feature please register your CmStick now at my.codemeter.com.
