you will have to put your key # in the License file after upgrading.

What do you mean, "If I remove 7.5"? You're saying that as long as 7.5 is installed on your hard drive, you get the error, but if you uninstall it, 7.0 magically starts to work? The error you are seeing is not symptomatic of not having entered a license key, it's telling you it can't find the dongle. If 7.5 can 't find the dongle, 7.0 won't either.

A dongle is a hardware thing that is pluged into a parrell or USB port that lets you use a program. If you dont have one, be quiet...

Random question, can you have a dongle on a dongle?

Actually, you should be able to plug several parallel dongles into each other, my dad had that at work for a couple of programs :D
I still wonder how the printer actually could still work...

Yes you can. Except for the USB dongle, which is a bit of a shame in some senses. It would have been nice to have a passthrough rather than locking out a full port :/

Less chance to blow it up now, I guess.
