Collecting multiple Computer ID Keys for manual activation

When your computers are offline, it may be challenging to collect your Computer ID keys.

So we came up with an easy solutioin:

  • Download and and unpack HSMAdvisor Computer ID Collector utility in to a USB flash drive (links at the bottom of the article)
  • Insert the USB drive into a computer which you want to register and launch the utility on each one of them one PC after the other
  • In the end "Computer_IDs.txt" file will hold all of your Computer ID keys
  • Send this file to us or  manually register the computers your self using steps outlined in the topic above

The zipped archive contains 2 versions: one for .NET2 and the other for .NET4.
If one of them does not work, simply try the other one.

Here is a video tutorial of the process:
