Can I configure a CmDongle as HID device?


Yes. Starting with Version 5.0, CodeMeter supports devices that conform to the USB Human Interface Device (HID) class specification. As an alternative option to the Mass Storage Device status, CmDongles can now be displayed as HID without a drive status.

HID is currently available for all CmDongles, 1001-02-xxx (without FlashDisk).


  • CmContainer with the ID "2-xxxxxxx" (Samsung chips)
  • Minimum CodeMeter Firmware 2.02
  • Minimum CodeMeter Runtime 5.0

The USB communication standard can be switched any time from Mass Storage Device (MSD) to Human Interface Device (HID) or vice versa. Please see CodeMeter User Help on how to perform the switch.
