Kaluza v1.2 and Windows 8

Recommended Posts

Microsoft released Windows 8 on October 26th, 2012. Kaluza v1.2 was released nearly a year before this and so wasn't tested against it. Kaluza won't officially be supported on Windows 8 until an updated version is released and compatibility is specifically claimed.

What if you want to try it anyway? You will need to download and install an updated version of the license software before you install Kaluza. If you do choose to experiment with Kaluza on Windows 8, please proceed with caution. Operating system compatibility issues can be subtle and complicated. Kaluza is not supported on this operating system and by using it in that environment you're working at your own risk.

These instructions have been updated with the release of new drivers by Sentinel:
1) Go to the Sentinel download page at http://sentinelcusto...+HL&o=all&t=all
2) Click on the "featured download" which is titled "Sentinel HASP/LDK - Windows GUI Run-time Installer – required for HASP4 API older than v8.0 / Windows, 13.3 MB, Version 6.60, Released 2014-03-27"

3) The "SAFENET SENTINEL HASP PRODUCT END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT" will appear. Review it and press the "I Accept" button at the bottom of the page.
4) The file will start to download. How this is displayed and where the file will be placed will depend on your configuration.
5) Press and hold the windows key and press "E" to start Windows Explorer. Browse to the "Downloads" folder under "Favorites" in the top-left of Windows Explorer. Locate the file "Sentinel_LDK_Run-time_setup.zip" and select it
6) The "Compressed Folder Tools / Extract" tab should appear in Windows Explorer when the file is selected. Press the "Extract all" button.
7) A dialog box will appear. Press the "Extract" button.
8) After the files extract, a new explorer window will open. Double click on the "Sentinel_LDK_Run-time_setup" folder shown in it
9) You should see an application named "HASPUserSetup". Double-click on it to run it.
10) Follow the instructions in the setup program. Answer any "computer changes" prompts with "Yes".
11) Install Kaluza, following the supplied instructions. Answer any "computer changes" prompts with "Yes". If you get a message that says "Windows SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized app from starting. Running this app might put your PC at risk.", press the "More info" link and choose "Install anyway"


Updated 4/2/2014 to use current installer name from SafeNet.
