    Will Dongle Load Xpress Pro after Update

     I still have an unqualified laptop that still runs AXP 4.6 in addition to my qualified Dell.  I will definately buy the MC update.  Does anyone know if the dongle will remain backwards compatible?  I've had it since 3.5.

    I'm pretty sure it won't work.

    Do you know someone nearby with a MC or MC Soft, maybe you could pay them a visit, and test with their dongle?

    But I can say that if you can run AXP 5.8 on your "unsupported" laptop, then i'm almost certain that MC Soft 2.8 will run just as well.

    :D

    Re: Will Dongle Load Xpress Pro after Update

     Thanks for the chime in Freddy, but my laptop run 4.6 not 5.8 hence the question.  My Dongle has always "Grandfathered" in the previous versions of AXP.  Wondering if the same it true for the MC upgrade.

     Hi,

    Take a look at this thread, which outlines the process of updating your dongle so it will run MC.

    good luck,

    Carl,

    What I am asking is when I upgrade my dongle to MC, will my second AXP 4.6 system still run with the newly updated MC dongle?

    Hi Chris,

    Can you clarify how many systems there are, how many dongles there are, and what you want each of them to be running?

    good luck,
    Carl

    EDIT: Ok, I reread your original post and understand that there are two computers, but I still don't have a clear picture of what computer is going to run what software with what dongle.

    Re: Will Dongle Load Xpress Pro after Update

     Sure, thanks Carl.

    I have a fully qualified Dell 390 that is currently running AXP 5.8.  I also have a 5 year old laptop that runs AXP 4.6.  I have one dongle.  Sometimes I will take a project with me when I travel on the laptop.  I take the dongle from the desktop with me.  The dongle has always been backward compatible across all of the upgrades it has been through starting with Xpress DV 3.5. 

    That is where the question comes up.  I am going to purchase the MC upgrade to install on the Dell.  I am attempting to understand, before the purchase if I will still be able to move the dongle to the laptop and run AXP 4.6.

    Any insight is helpful, I know it may be too early to know.

    Thanks,

    Chris

     I sidejacked another thread.  It looks like it should work. See this.
