View Full Version : Parallel Dongle Support for LW-64?

The Windows XP Pro x64 Product Registration screen has 'Parallel' listed as a dongle type in the pull-down box. Can I use my parallel port security key with 64-bit Lightwave, or must I trade in for a USB device as I've heard previously?

Thanks...

The beta driver supplied with the LightWave 64 installer supports only USB. Early indications from SafeNet were that the final drivers would also support only USB, but recently they've said the final release version drivers will very likely support parallel dongles as well. Please understand this information may be subject to change with SafeNet's final release.

Thanks, Chuck. I'll ring Customer Service.

I'd be interested in the response to this one as I have a parallel dongle too. I'm tempted to get the 64 bit upgrade this weekend as LW64 is downloadable but if I need a USB then I may as well wait a while..
