Hi All,

I have just plugged in my dongle and Windows seems happy with it. How can I tell if Stardraw is recognising it and I am correctly licensed, please? I have looked in the Help About Stardraw menu item, and it makes no referenceto licencing.

Many thanks, Dom

Hello all,



We have the same problem.

Hi Bjorn,

Dominic's problem was resolved by the update published on October 18th.

Have you accepted updates?  What do you see when you select help | About Stardraw?

By storysound - 3 Years Ago
I have accepted the update.



And i see this in the about screen

That looks correct - there is no dongle plugged in, so the dates shown are those of the expiry of your demo period.  When you plug in your dongle you will see its licensing details.

Hello Rob,

I have plugged in the dongle.
But I have also plugged in an other hasp dongle from a other program.

What is the behavior when only the Stardraw dongle is plugged in?

Hello Rob,



I think I found the problem.



Kevin sent me a link to check the dongle number. And there stands it is a dongle for Stardraw Audio to August 2006

Hi Bjorn

What is the number of the dongle, and what is shown in Stardraw Design 7 when you select Help | About?  The dongle you should be using is 2003422925 and any other Stardraw dongles in your possession should be returned to us.  Thanks.

Hi Bjorn,

It is very strange that SD7 is not seeing the dongle.

  1. Ensure that only 1 dongle is plugged in.
  2. Restart SD7

What does Help | About show?

Hi Rob,



Still the same



also on other workstations it doen't work.


By David Snipp - 3 Years Ago
Just to finish this thread - after examining the workstations, we discovered that they all were missing a Microsoft DLL that is normally part of the system.

We have updated Stardraw Design 7 to include this DLL (msvcr70.dll) and this appears to fix the problem.

Hi

does anybody know why my hasp key light would start blinking instead of glowing solid?
Stardraw doesn't recognize the usb dongle
Can you help me?

Luca.

Luca,

Can you make sure you have all the latest updates for your machine, including any hardware and optional updates?

You may need an updated Aladdin HASP USB driver.

If you are still having problems with your dongle and you have a current subscription then we would be happy to replace your dongle free of charge. Just send your broken dongle back to the same people that you purchased your original dongle from.

Hi David,

Of course, I have all the latest updates including sentinel LDK Run-time vers.6.22 for all my machines where I work.

I purchased my original dongle from you at the xSolution trade show in London last october.
I am Luca from Powersoft.

I was wondering when and where I could send you my broken dongle.

Let me know.

Thanks in advance

Luca.

Luca,

Sorry, I did not recognise the name (There are a lot of Luca's in the world Smile)

Feel free to send the dongle directly back to us and we would be happy to replace it.
