As Windows® operating systems and dongle technology evolve, we have to take precautions to keep BrainVision Analyzer 2 compatible. Our USB license dongles can be configured either as HASP HL or as Sentinel HASP keys. HASP HL keys have served us well for a long time, however, we have been using the newer Sentinel HASP dongles already since Analyzer 2.0.3. As they have some advantages over the old dongles, such as easier configuration as well as support for add-on licenses, we have decided to finally retire HASP HL dongles. In most cases, the USB dongle can be upgraded from HASP HL to Sentinel HASP with a simple software update.
From BrainVision Analyzer 2.2.1 onwards, only Sentinel HASP dongles will be supported. All our Analyzer 2 customers are entitled to an upgrade of their HASP HL dongles to Sentinel HASP. We offer this upgrade free of charge until December 31, 2021. From January 1, 2022 costs may apply depending on the type of license key (see section 3).
In the next sections, we provide you with a self-check to assess what technology your dongle is using, and with the recommended steps how to upgrade your HASP HL dongle.
