OLD PC - PARALEL PORT --->
SECURITY KEY

Thanks!

Software Update

I would start by contacting the software vendor.

They must have run into this issue by now.

Beyond the dongle issue, will the software run properly on the new computer?

You may need to update to a newer version of the software in order to get a USB or no dongle.
