HomeCLC FAQ - CLC licenses and myCLCLicense order IDs and Host IDsWhat is the host ID for a machine running the CLC Workbench?

4.1. What is the host ID for a machine running the CLC Workbench?

To find the host ID of the machine running the CLC Workbench software:

  • Start up the CLC Workbench.
  • Start up the License Manager by going to the the Help menu and choosing License Manager.

In recent versions of the Workbenches, you should see the host ID reported in the section of the License Information tab called Local Machine Information:

Alternatively, if a License Wizard opens automatically when you start up the Workbench, then you should see the host id for the machine at the bottom of that window:

 For older versions of the Workbench, you will see your host ID reported at the bottom of the License Wizard of the Workbench (see above). If it has not opened automatically, then you can open it by going to the the Help menu and choosing License Manager and then clicking the button labeled Upgrade License* in the main License Manager window.

* If this button is greyed out its because you are not running the Workbench with administrative rights. For information on how to run the Workbench with administrative rights please refer to the Related Page 'How do I run the Workbench as administrative user?'
