We have had to move an DOS construction estimating package from a very old 80286 machine (after a mere 20+ yeas of service, the computer died) into a Windows XP machine. We have the registration information and the dongle - everything except the activation key. The software company is out of business. We can run the program in sample mode, but we cannot activate the program to open the current data or for it to actually run.
The construction company is the legal owner of the software and the parallel port dongle, but we can't get the software to run without the activation key.
We can provide the program files so that it can be hacked to run without the dongle, or arrange to remote into the machine to get it hacked with the dongle installed.
Either way, we need help cracking the key to run the program.
