Hardware dongle license for Archicad 6.5 USB

Post by Citroenaap »

Dear all,

I have to connect my emulated 9.0.4 virtual machine to a hardware dongle trough USB so that it can conform the license of the software Archicad 6.5. Is this possible, is there a guide or how should i do this?

found a post stating that no USB ports are not working in Sheepsaver, any other ports that are?

funny enough the dongle i want to connect is an original Apple Desktop Bus. but don't know how to connect this to the emulated OS 9.0.4 :(

Help is verry welcome!

Greetings,

Citro

As far as I know, there are no emulators that emulate ADB to the point where you could actually plug in a security dongle. Adding the extra layer of USB makes it even more of a remote possibility.

You are far more likely to find a cracked version of ArchiCAD 6.5 that doesn't require a dongle to run.

You might be in luck. I found this page that mentions a dongle emulator for Archicad:
