The information on this page is for downloading x_cpu.exe for Visual LANSA V11 and V12. To download a V13 x_cpu.exe, click here.

A LANSA license code is only valid for a PC for which it was requested. The PC is identified by its CPU serial number and model. A special utility, x_cpu, is provided to display this information.

A V11 or V12 license request must be accompanied by the CPU details as generated by a V11 or V12 version of X_CPU.EXE.

This executable is shipped as part of the Visual LANSA installation and can be accessed from the LANSA folder from the X_CPU utility option.

The X_CPU utility can be accessed from the LANSA folder.

It is available for download here for situations where a full Visual LANSA is not yet installed on a PC, for example, for a Proof of Concept or for a Windows production server that won't have a full Visual LANSA installation.


Once downloaded, the x_cpu can be run from any location on your hard drive. The generated x_cpu_<model>_serial nunber>.txt file will be created in the same location. For example, if you download x_cpu.exe to c:\temp and execute it, the generated x_cpu_<model>_serial nunber>.txt file will also be created in c:\temp. Locate and send the  x_cpu_<model>_serial nunber>.txt file to your local LANSA licensing representative.

Tip: We recommend that you save the x_cpu.exe to the Visual LANSA root directory.

Note: Your company policy may enforce restrictions on downloading certain files, including zip file and executables.
