Introduction:

This document will explain how to:

  • Access the CodeMeter Control Centre (CC).
  • Import the necessary license containers into CodeMeterCC.
Background:

The ActivationWizard.exe used to activate licenses CA Agile Requirements Designer, but it has been deprecated in Agile Designer 2.0. It is still available under the installation folder, but it will no longer be used to activate Agile Designer licenses. The ActivationWizard has been replaced with offline and online license activation through CodeMeter Control Centre. This license activation method requires certain license containers in order to request and apply Agile Designer licenses. If you have never activated a license on your Agile Designer instance before, you will need to follow the instructions below before requesting and applying a license. 

Environment:
CA Agile Requirements Designer (ARD), formerly Test Case Optimizer (TCO). All product release versions.
Instructions:

Accessing CodeMeter Control Centre

There are multiple ways to access the CodeMeter Control Centre (CC).

Option #1:

  1. Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\CodeMeter\Runtime\bin.
  2. Locate 'CodeMeterCC.exe'.
  3. Right-click on the executable, and choose 'Run as administrator'.

Importing License Containers to CodeMeter CC

There are two ways to import the license containers to CodeMeter Control Center.

Option #1:

  1. Launch CodeMeter Control Center by one of the methods listed above.
  2. Click on the 'License' tab. If you have never applied a license before the list will be empty and you will see the message 'No CodeMeter License information available. No CmContainer found.' 
  3. Click on the 'File' tab located in the toolbar.
  4. Choose 'Import License...' from the list.
  5. Navigate to the 'activation' folder in the Agile Designer installation directory. The default location for this is C:\Program Files\Grid-Tools\AgileDesigner\activation. If you installed ARD for the first time starting ARD 2.5, you may have this file in this new default path C:\Program Files\CA\AgileDesigner\activation.
  6. Select the 'AgileDesigner.wbb' file. You may not see '.wbb' if your file extensions are not showing. In that case, the file would appear as 'AgileDesigner'.
  7. Click the 'Import' button. 
  8. You will now see the AgileDesigner license container listed in the 'License' tab.

  2. Click on the 'License' tab. If you have never applied a license before the list will be empty and you will see the message 'No CodeMeter License information available. No CmContainer found.' Leave this window open.
  3. Navigate to the 'activation' folder in the Agile Designer installation directory. The default location for this is C:\Program Files\Grid-Tools\AgileDesigner\activation. If you installed ARD for the first time starting ARD 2.5, you may have this file in this new default path C:\Program Files\CA\AgileDesigner\activation.
  4. Select the 'AgileDesigner.wbb' file. You may not see '.wbb' if your file extensions are not showing. In that case, the file would appear as 'AgileDesigner'.
  5. Drag and drop the 'AgileDesigner.wbb' file into the 'License' tab of the CodeMeter Control Center window.
  6. You will now see the AgileDesigner license container listed in the 'License' tab.

Now that your license container has been imported, you will be able to request and apply an Agile Designer license.

Additional Information:

If you have any other license containers besides 'AgileDesigner' in CodeMeterCC, such as 'AgileDesignerUnb', 'AgileDesigner-Trial', or 'AgileDesigner-Offline', we suggest deleting them to avoid confusion. Here are directions on how to delete licenses and license containers: https://www.ca.com/us/services-support/ca-support/ca-support-online/knowledge-base-articles.TEC1895511.html
