a) Start the just installed CodeMeter Control Center app.

b) Insert the physical USB license key.

c) If the serial number of the stick is visible in the left pane of the Control Center, your USB license key is compatible so that you can continue with the installation of INTERACT. 

If nothing appears, your license key is not compatible; please get in touch with our support team.
