What is a dongle?

I was told that in the unlimited version the program will be delivered with a dongle. What is that?

A dongle, also called connector or key, is a small piece of hardware which looks similar to a memory stick but isn't. In order to run our program your personal dongle needs to be attached to a USB port. If you do not insert the dongle the program won't work.

The advantage of this system is that you are entitled to install the program on as many computers as you want while you can use it only on one computer at a time.

Older versions of RADAR came with an LPT dongle which looks like this.

If your program does not start even though you have inserted the dongle, refer to this.
