I have two networked computers. I have TRADOS 6.0 installed on one, and I bought an upgrade to 6.5. I would like to install it on the second computer, but I wonder if performing a dongle upgrade, will not make it impossible to use 6.0 on the first one. Does anybody use the same dongle for 6.5 and 6.0?

Hi rzawadzk,
I have two networked computers. I have TRADOS 6.0 installed on one, and I bought an upgrade to 6.5. I would like to install it on the second computer, but I wonder if performing a dongle upgrade, will not make it impossible to use 6.0 on the first one. Does anybody use the same dongle for 6.5 and 6.0?

I have T5.5, T6.0 and T6.5.2 installed on the same machine (the only reason being that sometimes I need to try and replicate a problem under an older version) - all using the same dongle.

What I would suggest is to upgrade both machines to T6.5. Obviously, you will only be able to use it on one of them at any one time.

HTH, Ralf

Even the old Trados 3 works with USB-dongle Sep 14, 2004

which I have upgraded (reprogrammed) to 6.5.5
OTH you can get soft key from Trados, allowing you to install Traos parallel on notebook and desktop, without having to switch the dongle. You are then allowed to use either the notebook or the desktop at one time.

I would strongly advise you to upgrade to the latest build, as it does not mess polish characters anymore, as the previous vesions used to.

Regards
Jerzy

on the same machine, like Ralf. The dongle was upgraded but still works with 6.0.
