CodeMeter Update

The vulnerabilities were closed by WIBU Systems with CodeMeter version 7.10a. This new version has been tested and released by dSPACE.

dSPACE recommends the update to the current CodeMeter version published here for all CodeMeter Floating Network License Servers.

For PCs and virtual machines without Internet access, dSPACE rates the update as optional.

CodeMeter 7.10a is no longer compatible with Windows XP SP3. Therefore the update must not be installed on PCs or virtual machines that run legacy dSPACE releases under Windows XP SP3 based on CodeMeter Licenses and "Legacy Licensing using CodeMeter Licenses”.


The updated version is available here.
