Mitti Help - License Management

Lost License?

You can retrieve your license key on your Account Page, you’ll find that option below the text field.

License Information

You can list the computers associated with your license as well as the basic license info on your License Account page.

License upgrade

If you need to increase the allowed number of computers with your license, you can purchase more seats in your License Account page.

Computer deactivation

If you no longer need your license on a computer - e.g. you want to move your license to a new computer - you should deactivate it. The computer needs to be connected to the internet - just like with activation.

The Deactivate Online command is available from the Registration... panel that you can find in the Mitti menu.

If you forgot to deactivate your copy but wiped out the hard drive, you will be still able to re-activate your license key on that computer again and it won't count as a new activation, since Activations are computer-dependent. Once you re-activated your copy, you can properly deactivate it.

If your computer has been broken and stolen, the License Account page offers a limited number of Emergency Deactivations that renews yearly.

Dongle License

In Mitti 2, you can transfer seats of a perpetual license to a USB thumb drive of your choice, to create a USB Dongle. When you plug it into a computer it makes Mitti 2 registered - until you unplug it.

The USB drive needs to have a unique serial number, and it should use APFS file system - prerequisite to use APFS file system is to use GUID partition table.

Making a Dongle

To make a Dongle, your computer has to have a Mitti 2 perpetual license installed, and needs to be online. Then select the Registration... option from the Mitti menu, and click on the Manage Dongle License button.

Once you click on the Manage Dongle License button, you will be asked to type your license key for verification purpose. After that, you need to select the destination USB thumb drive from the popup button.

Click the Install button, then after you accepted the terms - If the USB drive is lost or stolen, your license seat will be lost forever. ⚠️ - one of your available license seat will be transferred to your USB thumb drive - this creates a Mitti License Dongle folder on the root directory.

If you modify that folder, or delete the drive, Mitti won't recognize the dongle anymore, so you need to re-create your dongle. However, during the process, the licensing server will detect your dongle, and will install back your previous seat, instead of installing a new one.

Remove the license from a Dongle

The process is very similar to the making - once you select the USB thumb drive from the list that contains your license already, click on the Remove button to remove it from the Dongle and set it back to your license key as a free slot.

What else you need to know

  • To make a Dongle or remove a license from a Dongle you need an activated computer that is activated with the same license key.
  • One license key has to always remain for computer activation, so you could manage your Dongles with that.
  • Mitti only starts to use the Dongle if the computer has not hold an activated license already.
  • One Dongle cannot hold multiple license keys or seats.
  • You cannot make a Dongle from a Rental License.
  • The Emergency Deactivate option isn't available for Dongles.

Command Line options

You can activate or deactivate your copy of Mitti using the command line with a script or even from with the following commands: activate=yourlicensekey deactivate


If you purchased our Mitti 2 rental license 5 times (from the same e-mail address or from within the same company), we would be happy to give you a perpetual license in exchange, since you already spent as much on licensing Mitti as a perpetual license.

However, this is not an automated process yet, so if you think you already meet with the conditions, please contact us with the details of your previous orders.
