Windows 7 64-bit, ArchiCAD 17 64-bit, WIBU key, NO LICENSE

Not applicable

Brand new install of Windows 7 64-bit.
Confirmed updated License on my WIBU key.
ArchiCAD Solo 17 International Commercial Single License 1 Perpetual
[on WIBU USB dongle]
Installed ArchiCAD 17 64-bit
Specified WIBU License
Installed current drivers from WIBU

Although the GraphiSoft License Activation tool shows the correct information, ArchiCAD only reports CodeMeter errors, initially 230, and now 111.

The only reported similar problem that I have seen reported, was solved by installing the drivers direct from the WIBU site; which solved my problems previously when running ArchiCAD 15 Solo on Windows XP.

Unfortunately, not this time ...

Any suggestions ?

Archicad 17 installs Codemeter automatically even if you didn't specify it.
Try to uninstall it and see what happens.
Go into Control Panel > Programs & features and uninstall Codemeter.

Well, I tried uninstalling all CodeMeter and WIBUkey software, and then re-installed the 64-bit WIBUkey drivers etc from

At this point the ArchiCAD License Activation program could not find the key.

So I uninstalled the 64-bit version, and installed the combined 32/64-bit WIBU software and the License was again recognized by the Activation program.

However, ArchiCAD 17 still does not find the License, although its reported error has now reverted to 'codemeter 230', with no codemeter software installed ...

Frustrating ... !!!!!
