This article applies to users who have a HASP module and whose operating system changes.
After new Windows updates (started in fall 2017), the HASP driver will no longer automatically install into clean Windows 7/8/10 operating system installations. Previously, the driver was successfully installed by connecting the HASP module to the USB port.
The problem occurs in the following situations:
- Vertex is installed on a new computer with Windows 7/8/10 operating system.
- Vertex has been installed to an old computer whose operating system is updated from Windows 7 to Windows 10, for example.
When you start the program, a window opens telling that a license file could not be found and asking for an activation code. The HASP module label is not shown in the system information, indicating a driver problem.
A new computer with Windows 7/8/10 operating system and with the latest Windows updates installed. The HASP driver will not install automatically.
When you install Vertex, and the installation program asks if you want to install the HASP driver included in the installation package, select Yes.
