How do I find my serial key / license key?

You can find your license key using the command line interface (CLI):

  1. Open your CLI.

  2. Navigate to the MetaDefender Core folder (typically C:\Program Files (x86)\OPSWAT\MetaDefender Core XX).

  3. Enter the following command (without quotes): "omsLicMgrCLI.exe checklicense X" (where X is your package number).

    • Example 1: If you have a MetaDefender Core 4, enter the following: omsLicMgrCLI.exe checklicense 4

    • Example 2: If you have a custom MetaDefender Core, figure out the base package. Most often it is MetaDefender Core 16, so you would enter the following: omsLicMgrCLI.exe checklicense 16

  4. In the output, look for the value paired with the text “Key:”

You can also get your license key from the debug.txt file which is generated when you click Export quick debug log in the Logs tab of the MetaDefender Core Management Console.
