Roaming Licenses

With a Network License, you can ask PSMotion to enable Roaming licenses. These allow engineers to use MechDesigner on a computer that is not connected to your network for a period of time, e.g. for a business trip. Please email PSMotion if you want us to enable Roaming Licenses.

Running protected programs

Useful to know:

CopyMinder Protection Software:

To validate your Network License, a small program, CMServer, that you run on your server computer, needs an internet connection to the CopyMinder Server computers (third party protection software).

The CopyMinder Server IP addresses are:

All communication is done by HTTP over Port 80. Make sure that any firewall or proxy does not prevent, modify, or reformat the data being exchanged.

If required, please see INST-Globe-www CopyMinder Privacy Policy.


Like most server software, CMServer accepts incoming connections by "listening" on a given IP address and port. If the machine running CMServer also has a firewall (including Windows firewall as well as third party firewall software), then the firewall software needs to be explicitly told to allow the incoming connections to get through to CMServer. Likewise, if a firewall exists on a machine between the server machine (the one running CMServer) and the client machines then this needs to be configured too.

You may need to add an exception to your virus-checker for mechdesigner.exe.cm64.exe. (see folder C:\ProgramData\HW\...).
