My old shop computer (Windows XP) bit the dust last week and I am now trying to get my Engravelab 7.1 to run on a new computer running Windows 10. Problem is that the new computer won't recognize my security dongle. I get the "Error Locating Security Device 4294967295" message.

Is there any Hasp Driver that I can download to fix this problem?

I got a call from Cadlink telling me that I need to spend $300 to update my software to a newer version. I don't have $300 to blow, upgrading software that I have owned for over a decade now and has always worked perfect running my older machines.

please help

This issue is almost certainly due to having installed the Windows XP driver for our Hasp security protocol. The following procedure will remove the XP driver and replace it with a Windows 10 driver and should make your program accessible:

**************************************************************
Installing the Hasp Driver
**************************************************************
To install the Hasp driver, proceed as follows in strict order:

- ensure logged into Windows with admin credentials
- if not already, disconnect the dongle from the computer
- download and save to disk (do NOT run) the Hasp driver installer from:
* ftp://ftp.cadlink.com/pub/commercialrelease/haspdinst.exe
*- put the downloaded haspdinst.exe somewhere easy to get to (ex: c:\temp)
- Goto Start>Run and type /C:\temp\haspdinst.exe /r, /then wait for the hasp installer to declare it is done ("r" is to remove any incompatible Hasp driver that may be installed)
- Goto Start>Run and type /C:\temp\haspdinst.exe /i, /then wait for the hasp installer to declare it is done ("i" is to install the new hasp driver)
- Reboot the computer
- Once Windows is up and running, attach the dongle; Windows should indicate that it recognizes the device
- Run your CADlink program; the dongle should now be recognized
**************************************************************

Note: usually you can get the run prompt by typing run into the "ask me anything" box nxt to the Windows logo.
