GRAPHISOFT SA is proud to announce the FREE exchange program of WIBU dongles to CODEMETER dongles for all it’s SSA clients in SADC. The dongle exchange is aimed at replacing all WIBU dongles used by SSA clients in SADC, as these dongles offer limited programming flexibility and most importantly, these dongles will not be compatible with future versions of ArchiCAD.
To identify these dongles, refer to the image on the left, showing the 3 varieties of these dongles used in SADC since 2000. Once you have identified that your dongle should be replaced, you can visit the online programming and dongle information page, to retrieve your dongle information and speed up your replacement application by following the steps below (please note that you should not initiate any online replacement procedures yourself, unless instructed to do so by GRAPHISOFT SA one of it’s resellers):
