Error 273 on importing file


When you try to import a license file with the extension *.wbb, you the following error:

Note: also know as API Event WB273 (VIRTUAL MACHINE NOT ALLOWED) occurred (returned to caller) in Event Tab of CodeMeter Control Center


*.wbb is the extension of software based licenses, like a trial or a quick start license. They cannot be activated on virtual machines. If you want to test the BuildSoft software, either use a Windows computer or contact the support desk (support@buildsoft.eu). The support desk can install a different type of license that will work on a virtual machine.

When you purchase a license, the license will be delivered on a USB dongle, as a ticket license (if you buy in the webshop) or as a cloud license. All these systems work on virtual machines.
