Running protected programs

Useful to know:

CopyMinder Protection Software:

At activation time, and at 4-5 day intervals, a small program (CMServer) you run on your server will need an internet connection to a CopyMinder Server (third party protection software) to validate your license.

The CopyMinder Server IP addresses CMServer needs to connect with are:



All communication is done by HTTP over port 80. It is important that any intervening firewall or proxy does not prevent, modify or reformat the data being exchanged. If required please see INST-Globe-www CopyMinder Privacy Policy.

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

Your virus checker may think it is a threat.
