Post by venix » Sat Sep 27, 2008 9:33 am

Hello!
I have at my work a Simatic Step 7 and a WinCC Flexible floating license.
I want to know how can I make a backup to this license.

Best regards!

When you have keys ?
Hard Disk?
Floppy Yellow diskette ?
USB stick ?
One what you need - save serial number.

How to copy a License key

Post by siavashhn » Mon Oct 20, 2008 9:07 am

You don't need any kind of software or anything like that. 8)
just follow the instruction:

:arrow: Exit all simatic manager and licence Manager software....
:arrow: Cut your existing license key and paste it into another drive in AXNFZZ folder (Create this folder if it does not exist)
:arrow: Use Copy and paste command (You'll have a "copy of xxxxxx.ekb")
:idea: please use Right click and select the "copy" and "Paste" Command from the drop down menue.
:arrow: cut the main license key and paste it into the first drive in AXNFZZ folder
:arrow: Rename the "Copy ofxxxx.ekb" file to "xxxxxx.ekb"
now open License manager and check your file. :)

Make image of your hard drive :D.
After transfer license key back to your flash card.
Now use backup image and install it to your computer.
You will have 2 copys of your license key. 8)
