Problem with XP and Dongle

  Bib Al 11:19 02 Mar 2003

Some years ago I wrote an executable program using Turbo Pascal Ver 6. I supply my program with a dongle to proctect my software, thisdongle is attached to LPT1. I have had no problems at all running my program with Windows 95, 98, 2000 and ME. The program is DOS based and runs from a pif. I have now loaded Windows XP professional and my program cannot find the dongle so will not run.

Any ideas PLEASE.

Best regards

the dongle is not supported in WindowsXP. It's a fairly common problem, and can only be resolved by writing an XP driver.
