Updated:May 2019

From October 2018, LANSA no longer offers a hardware key (also known as a dongle) option for development licensing for any version of Visual LANSA.

Any new hardware key licensing requests and hardware key upgrade requests will instead be redirected to the LANSA Development licensing option, introduced in EPC142050 for V14 SP2.

Important Note: In order to obtain a replacement LANSA development license, you must return your hardware key to LANSA. Your LANSA license representative will provide details.
