 +In case of problems with GUI you can also create .cid file by running:
 +<​code>​cerberProbe > ~/​path/​to/​my.cid </​code>​
 +cerberProbe is located in the same location as RDGroupLicenseTool.bin in  bin subdirectory
  
 +===== Troubleshooting =====
 +Single activation should work for all users, (also for all versions of plugins, 3ds max and Maya on the same machine)
 +the license file is located in C:\Program Files\R&​D Group\Cerber\localLicenses ​ and available to everyone
  
 +occasionally some user accounts may see hardware config differently,​ which causes license error
 +so if you see license error in 3ds max for different user,  please send us CID file with the request for alternative license file 
  
-====== Notes ====== +this does not necessary mean that each user has to have a separate fileone alternative file usually work for everyone
