    Hi,

    I have some software called chief architect 9.0 which is housing design software. It uses a parallel port hardware lock to run and i have recently upgraded to a new laptop which does not have a parallel port. Is there any way i can hack or emulate the hardware lock to get the program to run on my new laptop? I have tried a parallel port to USB converter but the software doesn't recognize the device through this. The lock is made by HASP.

    Any help on this problem would be greatly appreciated.

    Chris

    Hello,

    You can make dump of your dongle using h5dmp tool.

    The passwords of your dongle is: 0x6555 0x5DEB

    Thankyou for the advice.
    I have done a small amount of research and an having trouble completely understanding the process.

    Is there any more advice you can provide me with in trying to get this working? or lead me towards a website that you believe will be able to help me further.
    I have very little experience with this type of program.

    1. Run the tool with parameters:
    h5dmp 0x6555 0x5DEB
    or
    h5dmp 0x5DEB 0x6555

    2. convert the created dump files to public solution format
    for example, multikey

    I am having a little trouble installing multikey on my 64 bit win7. Can you aid me on this matter? I have done a fair amount of internet searching but am finding it hard to find an active link to download the files i require.
    You seem to be quite clued up about this, do you have a link to a website that can help provide me with the files i require?

    For install the multikey driverunder Windows 64-bit you need disable drivers sign checking by DSEO tool.

    Hi i am trying to attack this problem again and am having trouble with the h5dump

    I am using the password that you supplied and everything seems to work fine but the only output i am getting is a 1kb file named hasp.dmp. Now through my reading i think i should be getting this file and one other file hhl_mem.dmp and am guessing they will both be larger than 1 kb?

    Can you please help me with this?

    Cheers
    Chris

    There is possible two reasons:
    1. your dongle model is HASP4
    2. you need run h5dmp tool under administrative privileges

    Ok i know my dongle is definately a HASP4, How does this affect my process about emulating the dongle?

    I will try the admin privileges aswell just to be sure.

    hasp.dmp file is enough for HASP4.

    Hi, i am still having troubles with this process. Through my reading of many online articles and research i have concluded that i need to follow the process of.

    1. Dump the dongle (HASP4) using h5dump. ( Have done this and get a 1 kB file called hasp.dmp)
    2. Use a program to convert this dmp file to a reg file. (Have tried dmp2mkey and get an error of "Not a valid PVA dump file, am just running the cmd command of "dmp2mkey hasp.dmp")
    3. From this use Multikey to emulate the dongle on my win 7 64 bit system.

    Right now i am at step 2 and get the stated error. Now through my reading there are a couple issues i have identified that could be the problem. I am using an old computer using an AMP Sempron processor and this could cause problems. OR using dmp2mkey could be the wrong program for a HASP4 dongle. Also i am unsure that i have the correct multikey version and am using it properly for when i get to that step.
    Am i right with any of these errors? Is there any more advice/guidance that you can offer me?

    Cheers
