Dongle not recognized - Windows 8

Startbeitrag von DerekM am 17.07.2013 12:12

Hi - I was running WinDev 17 on an XP machine until the machine died. I am now trying to shift to a Mac Pro running Parallels and Windows 8. I attach the dongle to Windows - but WinDev does not recognize it.

Are there any known issues with Windows 8 and Parallels? Are there any specific driver issues with Windows 8.

Any help or pointers very much appreciated. Also - what is the PC Soft support email address - I can't download and run the suggested WinDev App for support request :(


Hi Derek

there is a good chance that the drivers for the dungle are not new enough to support correctly windows 8...

So you should go to the dongle maker web site (if I remember correctly, they are made by aladdin) and download/install the latest version...

And pcsoft support email is (from the top of my head) supportgratuit@pcsoft.fr

Best regards

Hi Derek,

Did you already succeed to start Windev17 on a Win8 machine ?

I have no problem running WinDev 17 on a Windows 8 machine. But I use USB hub on the network to connect to my dongles. That way I don't have to fysically switch them arround and are in a safe location.

Hi Bart, no problem here in running WD17 or WD18 on a Windows 8 machine! Did you look into the Device Manager? Perhaps you can find missing drivers there?

OK, great !

I didn't try it myself, I just wanted to be sure that it works.

Thanks to all for the feedback.

I switched to a new Windows 8 machine - and the dongle works fine.

When I have some time, I will investigate the problem I had on the Mac/Parallels with Windows 8, and I'll note any issues with that configuration.
