  6. 6. Toon Boom Digital Pro - Network Installation Procedures About Installing the HASP Security Key (Dongle) and Device Driver As a security measure, Toon Boom Digital Pro requires the installation of a security key. The HASP security key (also called a dongle) is a small piece of hardware that fits into your computer's USB port. One of the benefits of using the HASP security key is that you can prevent unauthorized users from gaining access to Toon Boom Digital Pro while your computer is unattended. To provide this extra level of security, simply unplug the dongle from your computer at the end of each session and keep it in a safe place until next time you use the program. A software driver must be installed for the security key to work properly. When working in a network environment it does not matter which machine the network HASP key is set up on. That machine becomes the server and it broadcasts to all the other client stations on the network. This document explains how to install the HASP security device in the following environments: • Network Installation for Windows XP on page 7 • Network Installation for Windows Vista on page 18 • Network Installation for Mac OS X on page 30 Once plugged in and installed you will be able to open Toon Boom Digital Pro. 4
  7. 7. Windows XP Procedures Windows XP Procedures Here are the procedures necessary to install Toon Boom Digital Pro on a Windows XP based network.
