In the Read Me file, it explains about the dongles. You will need a Hasp 4 USB dongle when running VW 9.5 on OS 10. This is available thru your local distributor. They can also provide information in regards to downloading the drivers necessary. Please refer to the list of distributors at http://www.nemetschek.net/sales/International.html .

Katie, are you saying that all OS X / VW 9.5 users will need a dongle & driver? What happens to those of us who have no free USB port (for me because I already have a dongle for MacPlot)??? Would we need to buy a USB hub just to have room for the dongle? While I understand that dongles are cool in terms of preventing software piracy, I think it's slightly over-the-top for us long-time users. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks. PLC/ G4/ etc.

Peter, The dongle issue is for users that require dongles to activate the VW application. Most international distributors only distribute dongle versions of the program, requiring users to get the appropriate dongle and dongle drivers.

More than likely, if you bought it from Nemetschek North America you did not purchase a dongle version and will not require a dongle.
