Question: I lost my dongle for RIP software for Epson Stylus Pro wide format printer in our move. I have the the original software (DVD), if need be that could be sent to you. I have no idea what type of dongle it was? I contact Epson and was told that I would need to purchase new license, at full price. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Answer: We believe it is not fair you need to pay again for the license since you already have purchased it. In this situation we can offer dongle recovery service that can help making software operating even without sending us dongle dump. Please note, this service is provided to legitimate license owners only.

Question: I use a cabinet vision program it uses a security key to allow you to use there software it is a very costly program. I would like to make a copy of the security key so which dongle and emulator do I use

Question: I have an ALBAT+WIRSAM LPT1 key dongle that has been running on windows xp for years for a program called shapeing & nesting. We recently switched to Win7 64bit and the software will not run on 64bit. I believe it would run in XP Mode though, the only problem is that XP Mode dosent support LPT1 so my key is not found. What could be done with this?
Answer: Newest computers rarely have obsolete parallel ports but another problem is: usually old software does not use low lever drivers so dongle emulator can be useless. Most likely dongle recovery service is the only option for obsolete DOS packages that hardly work with modern computers running newest operational systems

Question: How do I know my dongle type or brand
Answer: Please check our dongle identification page

Question: Can you make a hardware copy of a dongle I own?

Question: I have a protech marketing inc, dongle used for an old dos based program called ultrapath, made by microphar made in france, can i get an emulator or a usb key so i can use it in my laptop?

Question: Is it possible to emulate dongles on terminal server 2003 (rdp) or citrix

Question: My CAD package wont open with my HASP4 dongle,I dont have an LPT port on the computer but have purchased a USB to serial port adaptor, no joy, Why wont the package recognise the dongle?
Answer: Dongle drivers usually cannot find dongles connected through USB to parallel port adapters. We suggest reading the key on computer that still recognizes the key, and then running dongle emulator on the new computer.
