How to renew your Chameleon Registration.

Solution [top]

  1. Find Your Chameleon Machine ID:
    1. In Chameleon, click Help > About
    2. The About iNTERFACEWARE Chameleon window appears.
    3. The Machine ID should be visible, something like this:
      chameleon help

      Note: If you cannot see Machine ID, then you are probably running an older version of Chameleon.

      In such cases, use the command line option below instead.

    4. Alternatively open a Windows command prompt “cmd” or powershell window:
    5. Type msgtransform –version to display the Machine ID and version number:
      C:\> msgtransform --version
      Machine Id: LCOMNEBDMA
      Current Locale: C
      Engine Version: 6.1 Build: 2 Beta
  2. Register Chameleon:
    1. Login to your members account and activate a new Chameleon license – using the Machine ID from the previous step.
    2. Alternatively email support at with the Machine ID and request a registration code.
    3. Paste your registration code into Registration Code field.
    4. In the Expiry Date field, select the correct expiry date for your license.
      NOTE: If the date does not match the key, the registration will fail.
    5. Click the Ok button.
