Downloading and Installing ClipExtract

FTP Access

To access Artwork's ftp server requires a login and password. Please email Artwork for the information when you are ready to download. Please note that many corporate firewalls either completely block ftp downloads or they inspect the download and block any that are executables (applies mostly to Windows.)

Requesting Download and License Codes

Please send Artwork an email identifying yourself and explain your reason for requesting download access and licenses. Please include the hostid of your computer.

Getting your Hostid On Windows

In order for us to generate license strings you need to provide us your machine's ID. This is best done by downloading the utility and running it on your machine. Use the System Settings tab and copy the Ethernet Address(s) displayed. See below:

If you cannot download (due to firewall restrictions) you can get this Ethernet manually by using the command: ipconfig /all from a command (DOS box) prompt. You need to copy the physical address of the active ethernet adaptor.

ipconfig dos box

Getting your Hostid on Linux

Using the hostid command on Linux may not provide the hostid that our licensing software expects. Instead, you should download the lmutil utility, execute it and send Artwork the hostid that this utility generates.
