    If you have more than one licensed product, for example, perhaps you also have some licensed plugins, you can choose the product you are interested in at the top of the window, and the license information for that product will appear in the License Information tab.

    Clicking on the Export License Information button in that tab, will generate a text file, which contains various information about your licenses, including the full license order ID(s).

    If you do not find any files in the folder called licenses within the installation area of your CLC Assembly Cell software, then please check whether you are, in fact, using a network license.
