    Angry Cursed be me Parallel Dongle!!

    Hey,
    I just purchased lightwave 7.5 from a user who no longer is using it. I
    understand the registration process, and I'll be sending it in later.

    Here is my issue:
    When installing lightwave, it says 'cannot detect hardware dongle would
    you like to install it now?' So I install it however it never detects the
    parallel dongle. (I put the dongle on while my laptop was off and rebooted
    installed the drivers and software, rebooted again, yet still it Lightwave nor
    WinXP doesn't detect the dongle.)I even went to Rainbow's website to
    download the lastest drivers...still doesn't work.

    Two questions: How can I resolve this issue?
    I hate parallel anything.Is there any way I can get a USB dongle from Newtek?

    Check your parallel port is enabled in the BIOS - some PCs ship with it disabled (hello Dell...)
