Finding Your Studiocode License
Once the Studiocode license is registered, you can find it's unique identifier by doing the following.
- Launch Studiocode
- Studiocode > System information
- In the window that opens, you'll notice something that resembles the following:
Online ID: 12106-xxxxxxx-STUDIO-V5-Institution Name <DE612>
Hardware serial number: C02L7JH1FD5
User: Ben Smith
Machine: Ben's MacBook Pro
- Online ID is essentially the Studiocode license, except for the fact that the string of seven X's are merely place holders for the actual digits. Since the first five (and in some cases six) digits of the license serve as a unique identifier, you can use them to look up the full license wherever you may have it documented. If you cannot find record of the full license, contact your Studiocode representative with the first five digits of the license so they can give you the full license.

- Hardware serial number is the serial number for the Mac itself.
- User is the user account for the Mac
- Machine is the name of the Mac itself (determined in System Preferences > Sharing)
It's a good idea to always know which Mac your Studiocode license is registered on, particularly in institutions that have many Studiocode licenses. In the event that a Mac is stolen or crashes, the registering institution must know which license was on the Mac in question with 100% certainty in order to Studiocode Group to reset or replace the license. If there is any question about the location of the license, the registering institution will be required to identify the location of the remaining licenses in order to deduce the license that needs to be reset or replaced through process of elimination.

Studiocode Group has the ability to tell you when a license was registered, but not on which machine.
