Add a license on Linux

On Linux you may run CVEDIA-RT natively or through docker. This guide will show both options for each command.

Adding a License

To activate a new license on your machine, you will use the add command, followed by your specific license key.

This command will activate your machine and retrieve the CVEDIA-RT license, storing it in the root/licenses/ folder.

Please replace YOUR_LICENSE_KEY_HERE with your actual license key.

Linux Native

./licensing --add -k YOUR_LICENSE_KEY_HERE

Linux Docker


Removing a License

To uninstall a current license from your device, you can execute the remove command in the command line interface—specific to either Linux or Windows—accompanied by your distinctive license key.

This procedure will disassociate your device from the CVEDIA-RT license, subsequently deleting the relevant license files from your system.

Importantly, this process preserves the validity of your license, permitting you to reactivate it seamlessly on an alternate device at your convenience.

Please replace YOUR_LICENSE_KEY_HERE with your actual license key.


Open the Command Prompt on your computer. Here's how:

  1. Press the Windows key + S to open the Windows search bar.
  2. Type "Command Prompt" or "cmd" into the search bar.
  3. Click on the 'Command Prompt' app that appears in the search results.

No navigate to the CVEDIA-RT directory (or folder) where you extracted the CVEDIA-RT files:

In the Command Prompt window, type the following command and then press Enter:

cd path\to\your\CVEDIA-RT\files

(Replace "path\to\your\CVEDIA-RT\files" with the actual path where you extracted the files. You can find the path by going to the folder where you extracted the files, clicking on the address bar at the top of the window, and then copying the address that appears.)

Execute this command in the console to remove a license:

./licensing.exe --remove -k YOUR_LICENSE_KEY_HERE

Linux Native

./licensing --remove -k YOUR_LICENSE_KEY_HERE

Linux Docker

./ -M licensing -- -- --remove -k YOUR_LICENSE_KEY_HERE

Listing All License Keys

To view a list of all the license keys active on your system, you can use the list command. The command remains the same for both Linux and Windows:


Follow the same steps describe in the previous section to open the Command Prompt and navigate to the the CVEDIA-RT directory.

Then run this command:

./licensing.exe --list

Linux Native

./licensing --list

Linux Docker

./ -M licensing -- -- --list


You now know how to add, remove, and list CVEDIA-RT licenses using the "licensing" CLI tool.
