STK uses the Ethernet (aka MAC) address of your computer's network card to issue licenses. This is the STK Host ID (MAC address). It will be a 12-character hexadecimal value. Your computer may have more than one value - so it's best to use one based on a value that is always active, so it will always be available. There are several ways to identify your MAC address/STK Host ID value.
License Manager (Preferred Method)
- Locate and open the License Manager.
- Use the clipboard icon beside the Host ID drop-down field to copy the Host ID to the clipboard.
- CTRL+V to paste it into your e-mail reply or online web field.
- Open a Command Prompt
- Type ipconfig/all. If your computer has multiple network cards, use the regular ethernet adapter and not the wireless one.
- Run LMTools.exe. You can find LMTools.exe in C:\ProgramFiles (x86)\AGI\LicenseManager\bin\lmtools.exe.
- Locate the Ethernet Physical Address on the System Settings tab.
- In STK, extend the Help menu.
- Select the License Manager or License Viewer option.
- Included with the STK install on both Unix and windows, locate the the command-line lmutil app and run it. for example:
Unix: lmutil lmhostid
Windows: "C:\Program Files (x86)\AGI\LicenseManager\bin\lmutil.exe" lmhostid
Note: This command will list all available Ethernet addresses (active or inactive)
