Introduction

This Technical Note applies to IAR System products that uses License Management System version 1 (LMS1).

Problem

The Compiler fails with a Copy-Protection 'no license was found' error message, but the IAR License Manager recognizes the USB dongle and shows a 'Dongle ok' message.

Solution

Install the latest dongle driver, and install it only for USB dongles.

Steps

  • Install the latest (LMS1) version of the License Manager from Technical Note 14255.
  • Remove the USB Dongle(s) from your PC.
  • Uninstall all old dongle drivers (Sentinel, SafeNet and/or Rainbow). Do this from the 'Add/Pemove Programs' tool in the Windows Control Panel.
  • Install latest Sentinel SuperPro drivers from Technical Note 62867 with custom settings. Make sure that only the USB dongle driver is installed. (See screenshots.)
  • Restart your PC. After Microsoft Windows has started, insert the USB dongle.
