    I came across an old version (6.something) of Flexi for sale. It is the original disks (I've seen them) with user and password and manual. The only dongle the owner has is not for sale - she's using it. She said it came with her cutter, not the software.
    Are there universal dongles that can be purchased or are they version/password specific?
    Thanks

    Yup.. Dongles come with the software not the printer.. :)

    Yes you can purchase a dongle. It will even come with a brand new wraped up CD with the program on it!

    Even if it is a serial type, they were just passthrough's for those of us that had serial mice and only 1 free port. The cutter does not look for dongle on the port the software does. Plus Flexi has their own dongle not a shared one with printers or cutters. :)

    Dongles are a joke. You either pay $1500 with a conscience, or download it free. That's the way it is.

    Dongles may be a pain, but if you're caught with pirated software, the joke is on you. Especially now, since more software companies are offering cash rewards for reporting the counterfeiting use of pirated software.
