I am trying to get a plugin to run via commandline that we are developing.
but I am getting errors complaining about "Missing serial number for 'CINEMA 4D'"

Running c4d normally works as expected.

Do I need a special license to run commanline tool  ?

Thanks Roger

Missing serial number for 'CINEMA 4D'!

welcome to the Plugin Café forums 🙂

Yes, the commandline renderer needs special serial number, that can be bought separately.
But if it helps, you can start the normal Cinema 4D executable from commandline providing additional options and switches.
