Answer has been posted already but I'll save you the headache of searching.

You'll need to do one of two things prior to installing 8.5:

1. Install the LW 8.3 update. This contains the new Sentinal drivers for the dongle and will automatically install them.

-or-

2. Go to Sentinel's website and download the latest dongle drivers.

Then you're good to install 8.5! I don't know why NewTek haven't bothered to mention this in their update procedures. :confused:
