The activation of your Embedded Wizard dongle (USB security device) can be necessary for several reasons:

  • First activation of your new Embedded Wizard license
  • Activation of a new feature level in the software
  • Activation of the code generation for an additional target platform
  • Extending an expired evaluation license

In any case the dongle activation requires a *.RFP file that is provided exclusively by the Embedded Wizard support team via email. It can be used only for the intended license number that are commonly part of the file name and will not work for other licenses. The license number is a four digit number on the key fob of your USB dongle.

To activate/update your dongle(s), please follow these steps:

  1. Install Embedded Wizard (if not already done).
  2. Save the provided *.rfp file to your hard disk.
  3. Start the tool “activate.exe”, which you will find in your "EmbeddedWizard" installation directory.
  4. Plug-in the dongle in a free USB port on your PC, load the *.rfp file into the activate.exe program and upgrade the dongle.
  5. Finished.

If you want to upgrade more than one dongle, please repeat the above steps for each device.


Meanwhile the USB dongle can be activated directly within Embedded Wizard Studio by using the menu item Activate License.
