CodeMeter and WibuKey Driver Downloads

CodeMeter (hardware and software based) and WibuKey (hardware-based) are protection keys for Archicad and other GRAPHISOFT products. A protection key is necessary to run Archicad and other GRAPHISOFT products in commercial mode.

Important Note for macOS users

The macOS 10.15 Catalina compatible WIBU-Key Runtime 6.52 is available here.

Short Introduction

The CodeMeter protection key (software or hardware-based) represents your license to use Archicad. You can use it to transfer the license from one machine to another. It is also possible to borrow a license for a particular machine for a limited time, without having to transfer the physical network protection key itself. Thus, the CodeMeter technology significantly reduces the risk of a lost or stolen hardware key.
An office using Archicad will probably have one network key and several CodeMeter keys (software-based license keys or physical CodeMeter keyplugs). If the user plans to be out of the office or offline, three options are available:

In the first two cases, the user borrows the license for a fixed period. The license can be returned by the user, or else it will expire automatically when the borrowing period ends; at this time, the license again becomes available for borrowing from the site key.

Please keep in mind that if a computer is damaged or the CmStick is lost, the user cannot return the borrowed license, which thus remains unavailable until the borrowing period expires. So it makes sense to set borrowing time limits wisely.

You can learn more about CodeMeter protection on HelpCenter.


Important Notes before Installation

  • When installing CodeMeter you must be logged on as a member of the Administrator Group.
  • The drivers below were tested by GRAPHISOFT to use with Archicad. To activate purchased licenses on your key, follow our activation steps: https://www.graphisoft.com/downloads/licensing/
  • Before uninstalling or installing CodeMeter drivers on computers from/to which CodeMeter licenses were borrowed, it is very important to make sure that all licenses are returned!
  • Remove the keyplug before you are installing the driver.
  • Please quit the browser during the WibuKey driver installation.

CodeMeter Protection Key Updater

With the macOS 10.13 (High Sierra), Apple introduced strict policy regarding the USB devices which use Kernel Extension. CodeMeter hardware keys distributed by GRAPHISOFT use Kernel Extension 3G. In order to keep the stability and flexibility of our protection keys, they must be configured as HID (Human Interface Device). Download the standalone Protection Key Updater from here.
