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.


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:
