I maybe buying a new computer soon. Can I take my parallel dongle off my old computer and put it on my new one or do I need to send the old one in for a new one. I am not sure how the darn things work. Thanks in advance:confused:

You can keep your dongle and use it in your new PC, as long as it has a parallel port obvisouly, which it will have.

Just remember to copy your license.key file to your new PC,

I have noticed some computers shipping without parallel ports nowdays.

That the beauty about Dongles - You can install your software on an infinite amount of computers. Say at the Office and at Home and also at 'Aunt Bessies', and all you have to do is plug the dongle into the machine you want to use it on at the time.

You should really order up a USB dongle. Less headache, more portability.:)
