The utilities echoid, and wechoid utilities may not provide the correct locking codes. Use HPechoid to ensure the correct locking code is provided to HP.


The utilties used to generate locking codes used by license keys will be in an incorrect format on certain operating systems.

A correctly generated locking code should be in the format 08-XXXXXX where X is a hexadecimal number.

Examples of incorrectly generated locking codes are:

  • 8-*14P 7D3D S41T 3BA8


Use the attached HPechoid utility to consistently obtain the correct locking code.
