We have an old msdos program that uses a dongle (which we posess and have licences) this program will run on windows up to '98 but will not run on XP (it can't directly access the port because of XP port protection) we need a small 'reversed engineering' job done on the program to stop the call to check the dongle so it will work under XP. (or alternative solution) (we do not have the source code)
