The following dongle drivers are available to download:


Expert dongle driver (NEW)
Version: 8.41

Compatible with both (new) LDK and (older) Hardlock dongles. Must be installed on the PC/Server that is using the STANDARD or the SERVER(Network) dongle for JETCAM Expert.

For "LDK" dongle -----------------------> Install driver with "HASPUserSetup.exe" from "Version8.41_LDK-Only" folder.
For "Hardlock" and/or "LDK" dongle -------> Install driver with "haspdiinst_LegacyDriverInstallation.bat" batch file from "Version8.41_LDK_and-Hardlock" folder.

If using newer Sentinel "LDK" dongle, then must use JETCAM Expert v22.00.00 or newer.

Microsoft's “Control Panel” for “Programs and Features” may not show latest installed version for "Sentinel Runtime", when only installing "Hardlock" and/or "LDK" dongle using "haspdiinst_LegacyDriverInstallation.bat" batch file. 
It may be best to first install driver with "HASPUserSetup.exe" and then install "Hardlock" and/or "LDK" dongle using "haspdiinst_LegacyDriverInstallation.bat" batch file

Port 1947 is used to communicate with local and remote components. Please make sure that ANY firewall settings do not block this port. This includes CLIENT PC(s) and also the SERVER (if using Network dongle on a SERVER).The Run-time Environment Installer adds a firewall rule named “Sentinel License Manager” that allowed incoming connections from private networks using port 1947.  You can manually allow access from public networks using this port, but Thales highly recommends against this.  If you do plan to allow incoming connections from public networks using port 1947, create a rule with a different name in order to prevent future RTE upgrades from removing this access.
