I work in an office with 3 computers, all with Trados 6.5 LSP. I have one USB Dongle, which is plugged into whichever needs it.
On this computer (which is the same build as the rest, et. same HD, same memory, same Windows version), the OS sees the dongle, installs the drivers, but Trados will not let me open a TM in Workbench (other than small TM's in the demo mode)

On all the other computers, Trados sees the dongle with no problems. I've tried everything I can think of:
*Deleting all USB drivers in Device manager (the computer reinstalls them on reboot)
*I tried every USB slot on the computer
*Flashing the key to 6.5LSP again

If you have any ideas, please let me know! Thanks,
