Where is the STK Host ID (aka MAC address) found?


QuestionWhere is the STK Host ID found?
STK uses the Ethernet (aka MAC) address of your computer's network card to issue licenses. This is the STK Host ID (MAC address). It will be a 12-character hexadecimal value. Your computer may have more than one value - so it's best to use one based on a value that is always active, so it will always be available. There are several ways to identify your MAC address/STK Host ID value.

License Manager (Preferred Method)

  1. Locate and open the License Manager.
  2. Use the clipboard icon beside the Host ID drop-down field to copy the Host ID to the clipboard.
  3. CTRL+V to paste it into your e-mail reply or online web field.
