    Geeze what a pain. I am trying to activate a license Raspberry pi Codesys Control for Raspberry PI MC SL. I have the Ticket and I try to do this:

    To activate your licenses offline - First step "Upload request":

    Create a license request file with Firm Code 101597 for the license container where you want to transfer the licenses. This file can be created with CODESYS. How it works
        Start the CodeMeter Control Center on the computer where the desired license container is located.
        Select this license container.
        Click "License update".
        Follow the instructions of the "CmFAS Assistant". Select the "Create license request" option.
        Select "Extend existing license" and make sure that the producer**(This is not an option)** with Firm Code 101597 is checked. If there is no entry with this firm code in this license container, then go back one step and select "Add license of a new producer"**(There is not an option for this**). Enter Firm Code 101597 manually, when requested.
        Select a file name for the license request file.
        Click "Commit" to save the license request file.
        Transfer the license request file that you just created to this computer.
    Select the licenses you want to activate.
    Select the created license request file.
    Click "Upload request and continue now".
    

    These directions must be outdated because they don't line up with what is in Codemeter. Seriously talk about OVER Engineered!

    There has got to be an easier way to do this.......I know you get more bees with honey but come on. Microsoft makes it easier than this.

    Yes this is must be an offline install. Yes this on a PI. I have the control installed I just need to license it. I have the ticket. Just no easy way to activate and license this thing.

    Ok good now we are on the same page. Where would I find the license container? Do I need to create one?

    Thanks

    I get to the point where I scan the network and I get nothing. I try to add a device and this doesn't work either. My Raspbery Pi is on a wireless network and different subnet. I can connect to in an was able to install the control. I see codesys running on the pi but I am unable to license it.

    install current version of the PI Package 4.0.1.0 there is the Gateway included ( on runtime install), add the new Gateway in CODESYS ( IP Address of your PI) and use the Gateway in the PI
    to do it. ( scan your PI by this new added Gateway)
