How can we help you today?


PCI Geomatics -

In order to gather the cpu id/fingerprint of your Geomatica installation please follow the steps seen below:


  • Standalone - Ensure the dongle (interlock device) is plugged into your machine and run the license utility. (Start > All Programs > PCI Geomatics > Geomatica V10X > License Utility)
  • Floating License Server - Ensure the dongle is plugged into your machine. Open a DOS command prompt Window (Start > Accessories > Command Prompt) and navigate to C:\Program Files\Common Files\SafeNet Sentinel\Sentinel RMS License Manager\WinNT and type echoid.


  • Standalone or Floating License Server - Navigate to the bin directory and run the echoid program by typing "./echoid" (without quotations).

Please note: The cpu id/fingerprint for Windows operating systems is tied directly to the dongle itself and has no bearing on the original machine it was installed on. For LINUX machines the fingerprint is tied directly to the machine itself.

No, Geomatica does not support USB hubs. The dongle must be directly plugged into the machine.

Yes. If you can run multiple versions of the software on the same machine provided you have a license key for each version. If you are running a dongle-less installation you can license past versions up to Geomatica 10.1 on a license server.

Student licenses are available to universities that have a Geomatica site license. In order to make use of these student licenses you will need to speak to your professor about Geomatica student licenses. If your University does allow student licenses you can provide your professor with your software fingerprint which they can forward along to us.

US and Canada Only: If your university does not allow for student licensing we have student licenses available for purchase by post-secondary students from Studica: http://www.studica.com/ca/en/PCI-Geomatics.

You will need to open both Inbound and Outbound UDP port 5093 and 5099 to allow access to the license server. You will also need to add entries into the firewall for all Geomatica related products, such as Geomatica, OrthoEngine, Focus etc. This question was also answered on our community forum - http://support.pcigeomatics.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/203600163-Firewall
