      Yes, the hasp is the catch. It is also called a portlock or dongle. When you buy a seat of the software you get the hasp/portlock which is a kind of electronic key. That is why anyone can download this software they charge tens of thousands of dollars for, because you can not run it without a hasp/portlock/dongle. HTH

        PC-DMIS will not run with a "key". It is known by several names: port lock hasp lock, dongle. It plugs into your computer either in the parallel (printer) port or USB port. This is how B&S/Hexagon controls use of their intelectual property.
        Even if you do manage to load pc-dmis on your home computer, you would have to have an "offline" license to use it without being attached to a CMM. Another thing to consider: does your home computer have enough RAM and the right video card?
        As for "personal use"; your employer, not you, paid for the pc-dmis license. Leave it at work and use it there.

        Edit: OK, so while I was typing all of this, two other guys jumped in.

            If you have a port lock on your off-line PC at work, can you unplug it and bring it home and use it on your home PC?

              Yes, but they will not be able to use the pc at work while you have the portlock.

                I work 12 hour days, believe me I don't want it at home but was just wondering if it was possible. I have an over seas trip coming up and was thinking that I could bring it along to China while I'm there working. No one else uses this off-line PC besides me anyways. I could still load both versions of PCDEMON's that I use onto a lap top, copy tip profiles, the cad and programs I want to work on, check video/graphics card, what about offline license(?). Hum, I think I'll just take it easy while I'm there - that sounds better anyway.
