You may need to:

Exception Paths

Add these Exception Paths to your Virus Checker:

C:\Program Files\PSMotion\

C:\ProgramData\HW\ - this is path with the CopyMinder product key, etc.

CopyMinder Database Server IP Addresses and Firewalls


MechDesigner must check a CopyMinder database to make sure your license is valid.

The IP addresses for the CopyMinder databases are.

Primary Server:

Secondary Server:

Please add these IP addresses to your Firewall white-list.

These servers are run by Microcosm Ltd, the developer of the CopyMinder Software Protection System.

The pop-up message '34' will show if you cannot contact the CopyMinder database and servers – /F indicates it is a trial installation.

Typically, you will need to add the IP addresses to your Firewall white-list.
