    Posted: 2017 Nov 01 at 4:36am

User Information:

Cinema 4D Version:   any 
Platform:   Windows  ; Mac  ;  
Language(s):     C++  ;   

---------

Hello,
let's say, user have registered version X of Cinema and GeGetSerialinfo returns  something like 22904200519, so unique license number is in this case 00519.

When he upgrades to version X+1 will the unique license number be the same or does it change?

(I'm using NFR license and demo versions and I need to know it, so I may adjust licensing of our plugin. Customers wants registration bound to software serial rather than hardware number.)

Thank you.

Thank you. Is there any other way to check if it is the same Cinema license?

Just a quick confirmation, C4DS is right, this part of the license number does not stay constant over major releases.

Sorry, hadn't seen your follow up post. No, I don't think so. I will double check tomorrow and will get back here, if I should be wrong.

I would be interested to know this as well, but I honestly suspect there is no relationship between unique numbers of different versions.
I have had Cinema since R9, and have not seen a consistent unique number while upgrading all the way up to R19.

I got confirmation, there's no correlation between the license numbers of different major releases.
