If you’re installing multiple (many) systems you might benefit from some of these tips:

Single license key with multiple activations

When you order multiple copies of the same product in the webshop, you’ll receive a serial for each copy. We can however merge these serials so that you’ll have only one serial with multiple installs. This is easier to manage as you can always use the same serial and don’t need to keep track of which serial is on which machine etc. To add extra- or merge activations please contact us.

Accessing the license over network/usb

The Licence Manager can be run from a network location or usb stick to speed up installation on multiple systems. To do so:

On Windows:

  • Install the License Manager as normal following these instructions.
  • You can now find the application here: C:\Program Files (x86)\BeatRig\BeatRigLicenseManager.exe, copy this file to your desired location (such as a usb stick or network drive)

On Mac OSX

  • Download the License Manager as normal following these instructions.
  • Open the diskimage and move the application to your desired location (such as a usb stick or network drive)

Activating from the command prompt

Some features of the License manager can be called from the console to automate installation of multiple systems.

  • Create a myfile.txt file that contains just your serial as text in it. And rename the extension of the file to .serial
  • Call the BLM through the console with: BLM.exe “path_to_myfile.serial”
    This will create a “mychallenge.chal” file in the same folder as the serial file (if it doesn’t already exist, it can contain challenges of multiple computers). And will then add a challenge to it.

    • Note ; this will create a challenge regardless if you have the product activated already on the target computer. If you want to automatically skip the creation of the challenge if the product is already activated on the computer; then append a extra argument with a 4 character productcode shown below.
      for example: BLM.exe “path_to_myfile.serial” LVLN
  • Request your response file with the challenge file at http://beatrig.com/my-account/activate/
  • At the same webpage, download the package files corresponding with your license.
  • Call the BLM with: BLM.exe “path_to_response_file”
    This will active the license on the computer.
  • Call the BLM with: BLM.exe “path_to_package_file”
    This will copy the installer package you downloaded for the BLM to be used.
  • Call the BLM with: BLM.exe install PRODUCTCODE
    Replace PRODUCTCODE with one of the 4 character options shown below.
    Which will install or update the product only if needed.

Productcodes:

SK6E – SideKick6 Extended
LVL1 – LevelOne
LVLN – LevelNorm
LVLV – LevelView
LVVS – LevelViewS
LVLS – LevelShow

You may append the argument ‘quit’ to any of these calls. which will make the BLM exit after it is finished.

Note; instead of calling the command line you can also just drop your serial or response file onto the License Manager’s program file or its window.
