  • Dongle Swapping Question

    Hello,

    After reading the paragraph in the instruction booklet about using Edius 5 on a separate laptop, I am still a bit confused.

    It states that one can put a file on a laptop from the dongle to allow Edius to function.

    Does this render the dongle useless once done?

    I would like to have Edius 5 on my desktop and laptop and need some clarification on if I need to move the dongle back and fourth or if I can put the serial number as a file on the laptop and leave the dongle in the desktop.

    Thanks

    yes, once you take it off the dongle, the dongle is useless until you transfer it back to the dongle

    I have a couple of dongles, so if one dies, I can afford to wait for a replacement

      Thanks Anton.

      How much does a second dongle cost?

      The same as buying another version of Edius?

        yes, the same as another Edius

        in my business, I can't afford to be down for a day because of a dead dongle, so I had to do it in case it happens

        I have had 3 dead dongles in Speed Razor days so I know it can happen

          That's very true, better safe than sorry.
          Software developers need to protect their product, the only thing I don't agree on is that due to these measures, we the licensee, have to put up with these frightening dongles (mostly) which can fail anytime. (loss of income)

          Dongle's have come a long way since then.
          When I look at the Cheapo plastic Dongle from Edius en Procoder I still get scared breaking them.

          I have many dongles, the best ones so far are from a company called Marx, it's "Full metal Jacket" has survived many years of abuse on my key rings, some thing the Canopus dongles would never survive.

          Maybe GV could have a look there (www.marx.com) and use them in future ................

            To save wear & tear on dongles, I use a short (4") USB extensions and use that to plug the dongles into systems, that way there not a stiff dongle stuck in the side of a laptop waiting to get hit.
