How To: Steam, Origin & Uplay license management setup
Posted by Panagiotis Mantzouranis on 05 October 2017 07:43 PM

Before proceeding to configure your licenses, make sure you are using:

  1. The latest Gizmo version
  2. The latest license management plugin


This article explains how to configure your in-store accounts using the Steam, Origin & Uplay License Profiles

  • Add a new license profile to the executable and select the appropriate type. 


  • Add your accounts, filling username & password.



  • In application executable, add path to steam/origin/uplay exe, eg.
    D:\games\Epic Games\Launcher\Portal\Binaries\Win64\EpicGamesLauncher.exe
    D:\games\\ Launcher.exe

  • In command line options, add the following:


Origin: origin://launchgame/GAMEID
OR       origin://launchgamejump/GAMEID
OR       origin2://game/launch/?offerIds=GAMEID





Replace GAMEID with the correct string depending on the game


To find out the correct GAMEID for a Steam and Uplay game, create the game's desktop shortcut, right click properties. The gameid is in the URL


To find out the correct GAMEID for an Origin game, login to with your origin account, select "My game Library" and the game. The  GAMEID is part of the URL on your browser.


Automatic termination of launcher after game has exited


Gizmo can automatically close the main launcher (steam/battlenet/origin) and release the game license when the actual game has exited.

In order for this feature to work, you need to enter the game executable in the license profile "child list"

For example, for PUBG, the main executable is TslGAme_BE.exe

If the game uses 2 or more executables, you can add all of them seperated by ;

Gizmo will track this specific executable, and close steam after the specified time.


Other method for origin

  • Open your Origin game installation folder, for example C:\Games\Electronic Arts\Origin\Origin Games\Battlefield 3\
  • Open  __Installer folder
  • Open with notepad the file "installerdata.xml"
  • Write down all the contentID numbers/text
  • Use the contentID in arguments in the following format: origin://launchgame/contentID1,contentID2,contentID3

Example: origin://LaunchGame/70619,71067,DGR01609244,DGR01609245
