View Full Version : Dongle ID?

02-27-2007, 01:02 PM
Where can I find this? It does not show when I open up modeler. I followed the instructions regarding configs, but I can't register due to lack of hardware lock. Any ideas?

In Modeler, go in menu Help->About Lightwave Modeler , and in the box that opens, you should see "Product Lock: XXXXX" .

Thats what I thought would happen, but it does not show in that window. It just says "Discovery Edition"

Open layout and try there it'll have same ID so no worry.

Just says "lightwave discovery edition"

Did you plug a dongle into your computer, and if so, did you install the sentinel driver for it?

Well, I installed the dongle driver when I installed 9.0 months ago. That version works fine. I have a parallel dongle.

You need to register 9.2 BETA also to get new OpenBeta temp license key. it's not same key as for 9.0 although Dongle ID should be same so just go to Registration page and register your 9.2Beta first.

Thanks for the help guys.

I ended up calling tech support. They told me to upgrade the sentinal driver, which seemed to work. Now it says that I have 17 days left on temp license key. It's definitely not in discovery mode :)

Do I need to make it a permanent key through the forums?

No, you can't get permanent key for OpenBeta but keys will be extended if needed before last day run out so no problems :). When 9.2 goes gold/final then you will get permanent license key. Enjoy in 9.2 ;).
