ExactNest License

ExactNest License

The ExactFlat Pro software requires a CodeMeter  license for running the nesting software. The CodeMeter license is separate from the ExactFlat Standard licensing system.  Each nesting license can be configured as a stand alone license, or as a network license.  Both standalone and nesting licenses require  physical hardware keys. View the pages below for basics on how to use the CodeMeter licensing system or click here to launch CodeMeter Help.

SafeNet Nesting Keys
The SafeNet Sentinel Nesting keys have been discontinued in ExactFlat V1.0.1.58. For users of ExactFlat V1.0.1.58 or older, please contact support to request an upgrade to the new license key.
Standalone Nesting Licenses
A standalone nesting licensing is managed by the CodeMeter Dongle (CmStick) provided with your purchase and simply needs to be plugged in.  If the CMStick is working properly, an indicator light will turn on.   The drivers should install automatically.  If not, the driver can be installed manually.   Please visit the CodeMeter Help site for instructions or contact support for help.
Network Nesting Licenses
A network nesting license allows concurrent use of the license based on the number of network licenses purchased.  The network capabilities are programed into the CMStick. Please ensure that you have the proper Network CmStick before you attempt to install a network nesting license. The network CmStick must be installed on a server with UDP ports 6001 and 6002 open to the client.
For Network Client Computers: In order to point client machines to the network nesting license, an environment variable must be set.   In Windows, go to to System Properties->Advanced. Go to environment variables to set a new system variable:
The new system:
  • Variable name: Autonester_LS.
  • Variable value: 71832159 followed by a space, then the IP address of the license server.
CodeMeter License
The CodeMeter license software is used by the ExactFlat automatic nesting system. CodeMeter is installed as part of the ExactFlat Professional Licensing process. CodeMeter installs a Desktop Application and a License Server.  After installation of ExactFlat, go to the windows “Programs” menu to open the CodeMeter application.

All of the information needed to install, update and manage your nesting license is provided on the CodeMeter site. Please review the FAQ for questions or contract your ExactFlat Support team for help by sending email to Support@exactflat.com.
