We provide hints and tips to help you get started with the main programs RFEM and RSTAB.
We have purchased new add-on modules and additional licenses. Now, we want to activate them on our network dongle. How do we proceed?
Step 1 - Sending c2v File to Dlubal
Open the RUS.exe file with admin rights directly on the server (do not use Remote Desktop Connection).
A dialog box appears where you click the [Collect Information] button. Enter the path for saving the c2v file in the next dialog box "Save Key Status As". You can use any file name. Your customer number, for example, would be an appropriate name.
After clicking the [Save] button, the Key Status is exported, and the c2v file is stored in the specified directory. A corresponding message appears when the storage has been successful.
Send this file to email@example.com. On the basis of the supplied information, we can create a file with the ending *.v2c.
Step 2 - Importing v2c Update Files
You receive two v2c files from us by email. Please save these files on a data storage medium.
Start the RUS.exe file on the server again. Select the Apply License Update tab in the dialog box that appears and set the path where the v2c files are stored.
First, use the […] button to select the FormatKey_*.v2c file. Then open the file by clicking the [Open] button. Now, you can import the update information easily by using the [Apply Update] button.
Repeat the procedure for the update_*.v2c file.
The update process is now completed.
As an alternative to executing the RUS.exe file, it is possible to import the update files using the Admin Control Center. You can access the ACC under the following link:
