  1. [Updated this entry, DEC 2018] [Updated this entry, JUL 2019] [Updated this entry, SEP 2019] [Updated this entry, SEP 2020] Apparently activating licenses has become a bit difficult for some people. This is an attempt to describe the necessary steps, depending on the different user cases. 1. General Assuming that you DID receive your license after placing your order (you did not? Read this) you now have your ticket URL. But on the attempt to activate your license ticket you may get to see the error message PHP_GET_NOLICENSEFIRMCODE_HEADLINE PHP_GET_NOLICENSEFIRMCODE_TEXT The most likely cause of this error is that you haven't yet installed the latest CodeMeter runtime version (7.10a at the time of this writing). This was released on Sept 17 2020, so it is not yet included in the Steel Beasts installer. Remedy: Download and install the latest CodeMeter runtime from here. We've refined the text in our ticket emails, so the following clarification has become largely obsolete: The ticket email text states that you MUST HAVE your CodeMeter USB stick plugged in (which was true up until 2013). None of our time-based licenses however actually require a (physical) CM stick anymore (a virtual CM device is created on installation of Steel Beasts). The ticket email also says that you must have Java and ActiveX enabled, with isn't a very precise wording, undfortunately. In short, most browsers today need neither, and MS Edge doesn't work at all. See the "Browser" section below for details. You may now experience one of several obstacles (or none, as is still the case for the majority of all users): a) You activated the license but you still get an error message when trying to start Steel Beasts Chances are, the firmware of your CodeMeter stick is outdated. Start the CodeMeter Control Center, look for the button with the circular arrow on the right side of the window (somewhere in the middle), click it, and follow the on-screen instructions. CodeMeter sticks with serial number 1-xxxxxxx should in the end have a firmware version 1.18 (as of the time of this writing), newer CM sticks with serial number 2-xxxxxxx should have firmware 2.04. Serial numbers 3-xxxxxxx can have an even higher firmware version number. If you're reading version 1.19, you have selected a virtual CM stick, not your physical one b) You want to activate a single license, but there is no immediately apparent way to do so Chances are, you're using MS Edge, or, more likely these days, the security settings of your browser prevent it. See below for details. c) You want to activate multiple licenses and get an error message about an "unsatisfied constraint" Chances are, you have ordered both a secondary license and an upgrade license. The upgrade license must be applied first - remove the checkmark from the "SECONDARY" entry, activate the "UPGRADE", then activate the remaining license. d) You want to activate a single upgrade license and get an error message about an "unsatisfied constraint" with error code 0x18080003 You probably have a first generation CodeMeter stick from a purchase made in 2006 or 2007. Please contact Sales (at) eSimGames.com for remedy. e) A combination of the above You'll have to work yourself through the individual issues one after another. If in doubt, start with the firmware upgrade. f) Windows 10 Download and install the CodeMeter runtime 7.10a (you may need to select it from a menu there). Runtime 5.22 didn't work under Windows 10 (for "reasons"), that was fixed years ago (as of NOV 2018) with later updates. 2. Browser a) Choice For whatever reason, MS Edge still does not support any of the needed technologies (see below); therefore I can but recommend to avoid it while trying to activate your license. The same goes for Lynx, but anyone familiar with Lynx would rightfully point out that it's part of the concept, and not an omission on the developers' side. b) Security At the moment the direct activation of licenses requires Websocket connections (pretty much any modern browser), or ActiveX (MS Internet Explorer), or Java (the fallback line; note that JavaScript is something else entirely, and whoever chose the name is probably the most successful troll of the last 50 years). Since CodeMeter runtime version 5.10a this is no longer necessary (provided, again, that you have an up to date web browser (except Edge) that supports websocket connections). That said, here's some general browser configuration advice (for license activations): If you're an experienced web browser user you could try and adjust your security settings to allow the execution of both JavaScript and Java You might try the Internet Explorer, and be it just for ticket activations. In the Extras menu | Internet Options entry | Security tab you could add the WebDepot to the list of "trusted sites". Assuming that the trusted sites have less strict security settings, visiting the ticket page should now either work without much further ado, or you would get a rather inconspicuous whitish-yellow pop-up bar at the top or bottom of the window asking you for permission to open the active content of the page. Confirm this if you trust us (...and you pretty much have to, given that you installed our software already, and used your credit card in our web store). If you can't follow the suggested solutions above, you will need to use the Offline Activation (see below) 3. Offline Activation This is the last option and a surefire method as long as you may upload and download files with your browser. Even old Netscape browsers should be able to do that (those with the blue wooden steering wheel icon that looked dated already in the 1990s). It's a reliable method, but less convenient than the direct license transfer. Also, we recommend that you seek eSim Games' support staff assistance, and send us your license request file by email, along with your license ticket URL. The offline activation method must be prepared. Start the CodeMeter Control Center. At the bottom of the window, half-left, there is a single button for a wizard program to handle license updates. You want to create a license request - so just follow through the wizard until you have a file named xxxxxxx.WibuCmRaC; save it to your desktop or a place that you can remember. Then send that file to eSim support staff, along with your license ticket code. If you don't want that: You may of course directly visit the web depot page. In the lower right corner of the window is a button for the "Offline Activation". Click it. You'll get prompted for the location of the *RaC file that you created before (see above). By uploading it you start the activation process. You will get prompted to save a new file xxxxxxx.WibuCmRaU - save it to your desktop (or some other place of your liking, as long as you know where to find it). Saving this file is important! It will transfer the license information into the virtual CodeMeter stick; without it you can't start SB Pro PE. Also, you don't get a second try (in which case you'd need to contact eSim Games, anyway - please have your license ticket code ready). Once that the file is stored you just need to double-click it and confirm that you, indeed, want to transfer the license. Done. If you want, you can use the wizard program of the CodeMeter Control Center again (this time, select that you want to apply a license update). It's more cumbersome than a simple double-click ... but hey, some people like wizards. That should be it, really. If you still encounter trouble it's best to contact me by email. In that case you can speed up the process by including the CmDustResult.log file. (In the Start Menu | CodeMeter | Tools program folder is a tool named "CmDUST" run it. It will open a Windows Explorer window at the end containing the log file. Attach it to your email to me, please). I feel generally confused by this WebDepot web page. What am I supposed to do? Fear naught! On the following page I will explain the WebDepot page in pictures. I heard about this "Firmware upgrade". Why is it necessary, and how is it done? On the following page I will explain the CodeMeter Control Center application, covering this and similar topics. The WebAdmin! What is it good for? On the following page I will show some examples what can be done with it.
  2. I am trying to renew my license. I remember last time I kind of stumbled onto how to do it but can't find anything about renewal, only activating. I have had this sim for awhile and enjoy it. Thanks in advance for any guidance you can provide
  3. Been using the same dongle since the first few months since dongles started being used for SB. I believe after all these years it has finally given up the ghost. See diagnostics file below. If it is the dongle that's dead what do I need to do to get a new one. If not then what do I need to do to make codemeter recognize my license (licensed thru version 4)? Here's the diagnosticts file from the Web Admin: 2018-07-17 10:38:14: CodeMeter for Windows (B6.50.2640.503.32.180) 2018-07-17 10:38:14: Running on Microsoft Windows 7 Professional Service Pack 1, 64-Bit 2018-07-17 10:38:14: Execution path: C:\Program Files (x86)\CodeMeter\Runtime\bin 2018-07-17 10:38:14: Found IPv4 address: | 2018-07-17 10:38:14: Found IPv6 address: ::1 | fe80::2d8b:bada:b85e:5e23%10 | fe80::7500:b74d:1e4f:2328%14 | fe80::998d:f35e:b556:e350%12 2018-07-17 10:38:14: Used Communication Mode (Client): IPv6 IPv4 SharedMemory 2018-07-17 10:38:14: Used Communication Mode (Server): IPv6 IPv4 SharedMemory 2018-07-17 10:38:14: Used IP address: default address 2018-07-17 10:38:14: Used IP port: 22350 2018-07-17 10:38:14: Used CmWAN port: 22351 2018-07-17 10:38:14: Multicast server search: not available 2018-07-17 10:38:14: Run as network server: no 2018-07-17 10:38:14: Run as CmWAN server: no 2018-07-17 10:38:14: Run as system service: yes 2018-07-17 10:38:14: Service startup delay: 1:23 minutes 2018-07-17 10:38:14: Box Access: use direct access mode 2018-07-17 10:38:15: License file "5000173_0001-0.wbb" loaded successfully. 2018-07-17 10:38:15: The list of available CmContainers has been updated! 2018-07-17 10:38:15: Detecting CmContainer with Serial Number 32767-41601 2018-07-17 10:38:15: A new CmContainer is available (currently found 1)! 2018-07-17 10:38:15: The list of available CmContainers has been updated! 2018-07-17 10:38:15: The list of available CmContainers has been updated! 2018-07-17 10:38:15: Found new entries: 1 2018-07-17 10:38:30: Access from local(IPV4) to SubSystem (Handle 22) 2018-07-17 10:38:30: Handle 22 released 2018-07-17 10:41:40: API Event WB261 (LICENSE NOT ACTIVATED) occurred (returned to caller)
  4. Hello tankers and everyone, i think that the title says it all already... i've purchased a 1 month license and received the mail properly but the attached license (or link?) have been blocked/censored by the email filter. Then i tried twice to contact e-sim games through the contact module on their website but i've received no answer aaaand.... well, 6 days have already passed by and i still cannot play the simulation, plus i'm wasting days i've paid for Any help?
  5. On release days, or the day or two following them, delays may occur between placement of order, receipt of the order confirmation to your mail box, and receipt of the license ticket containing the link to the web depot where you can claim your license Usually the email with the license ticket will arrive more or less the same second as the order confirmation. In times of peak demand, delays may occur. In September 2013 they have been reported to be as large as 40 minutes. Until about June 2016, and after June 2016, this is not to be expected. Around the release of a new version my recommendation is to have a bit of patience. If the ticket hasn't arrived within an hour after the order confirmation, it's time to take action - unless it's not June, where you should wonder immediately. The most frequent reason for a missing ticket is that it has been caught in a spam filter. Your ISP may put all suspected spam mails into a folder that you should check. Or maybe there is a local filter. Or maybe the email was filtered by a particularly aggressive mail relay server who considers the ticket URL as an encrypted message from Satan and therefore doesn't forward it as it bloody should. If you can't find it in your spam filter (don't pretend to look into it. Admit to yourself if you don't know how to do it, and muster the energy to ask your ISP/web mail hoster about this ... who knows what else has been filtered away that you never saw?). If you can't find it in your spam filter, it's time to contact Sales (at eSimGames.com). However, consider the possibility that our answers get rejected or suppressed by the same spam filter! If you do not receive a reply within a few hours (typically less than three, rarely more than six) please contact us here in the forum or provide an alternate email address as we may have no other means of contacting you. When you do, please forward your order confirmation email. Because the second most prominent reason why ticket emails don't reach you are typos in your email address However contacting us is totally pointless if your mail account has exceeded its disk quota and our attempts to contact you are rejected like all other incoming mail. It's kinda "duh", but it has happened today at least once, otherwise I wouldn't list it here. Sending Sales an email once is sufficient.
  6. I recently tried sharing my CM Dongle with a friend, following the wiki's article on License Sharing (http://www.steelbeasts.com/sbwiki/index.php?title=License_Sharing), however the licenses didn't appear on my friends CodeMeter Control Center after doing the process with and without hamachi. Can somebody help us get the license sharing running?
  7. I've done a little looking, so please excuse me if this has already been answered elsewhere... I recently got a one month license to try the game out and like it. If I purchase the full license now, will that license also cover the upcoming 4.0 update, or will that require a separate purchase?
  8. I buy this morning a "one Year License" and start SB 4.0, no problem. Now at afternoon i start SB 4.0 again and get the Error 200 and Error 263! My eSimGame License say "all License are activ" i make a new SB and CodeMeter install, no Game start and self Error message. what can i make?
  9. Don't get me wrong. I am a proud owner of a Lifetime license with Dongle and the small niche community here is the best. Love you guys long time. :clin: Have the owners of this software considered selling licenses on STEAM? Our community would explode with new members, for better and for worse. And the developers (Ssnake? and others) would become very wealthy by Monday. Will this game be made available through STEAM at some point in the future? Do you like money? :bigsmile:
