Summary

This document describes the steps for installing SES Software 14 on Windows 8.

There is a special requirement for installing one of the prerequisites of SES Software 14


Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0.

The installers for the
.NET
Framework 2.0 that are
dis
tributed with
SES Software
14
are not compatible with Windows 8.

Windows 8 will recognize this incompatibility
and will accommodate by downloading the correct installer and install it automatically. This change in behavior requires an I
nternet connection
d
uring the installation of SES Software 14.

Unlike Windows 7, Window 8 does not come stock with Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0. In the prerequisite phase of the installati
on of SES
Software

14
,
the installer will offer to download an
d install Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5

if this version of the Framework is not already
installed
. Framework
3.5
also
contains
.NET
Framework 2.0
, so it fulfills the prerequisite’s requirement
.

If you have

an

Internet connection, then you may proceed with the installation of Framework 3.5 and continue with the rest of the installati
on of
SES Software 14.

However, if you do not have

an

Internet c
onnection, then you may use the
DISM
(Deployment Image Servicing and
Management)

tool
that comes
preinstalled

on

Windows 8 to
insta
ll Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 from your Windows 8 installation DVD;
then
start the SES Software 14
installation.

Please refer to
Step
-
B

of the
Prerequisite Phase

section below for further details.







IMPORTANT NOTE FOR 14.0.380/14.1.40/14.2.18:
During the first
-
time installation of SES Software 14 on Windows 8, please do not attach the
software protection dongle (USB key) to your computer until the driver for the dongle has been installed by the SES Software
installer (as
described in the
Driver Installation Phase

section). Please refer to the section,
Activating the License on the Dongle
, in which you will be required
to attach the dongle to your compute
r in order to carry out the license activation phase.

Please keep the dongle attached to your computer once the license has been activated on the dongle.

If you detach the dongle and then reattach it to the computer one or more times, then you may observe

a side
-
effect in SESLicenseManager and
in the “Help > About” dialogs of the main programs that display the dongle more than once in a drop
-
down list. This side
-
effect is harmless and
does not affect the proper operation of the software. A reboot of your c
omputer, while keeping the dongle attached to your computer, will
eliminate this side
-
effect. Please note that if you need to either renew or activate your license when the side
-
effect is present, you will be
required to perform a reboot of your computer i
n order for SESLicenseManager to function properly.

Prerequisite Phase

A.

The list of prerequisites are shown at the start of the installation.

B.

Windows 8 does not come preinstalled with Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0. It needs to be installed by downloading the Microsoft

.NET
Framework 3.5 package that includes
.NET
Framework 2.0.

SES Software 14 installer will offer to download and install Microso
ft .NET Framework
3.5.


Note that t
he installers for Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 (32
-
bit and 64
-
bit) that come stock with the SES Software 14 distributions are not
compatible with Windows 8.
There are two known sources from which Microsoft .NET Framework
3.5 can be retrieved:



downloaded
and installed
from Windows Update using the
Windows Features

dialog; or



installed from the Windows 8 DVD using the
DISM

tool.


A
part from the above two sources, Microsoft has not provided other sources (e.g., self
-
extracting downloadable package) for .NET Framework
3.5 that
can be supported by Windows 8.


W
hen SES Software 14 is being installed

on

Windows 8 that does not already ha
ve .NET Framework 2.0 installed
, then the installer will show the
Windows Features dialog to offer to download and install Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.
If you have

an

Internet connection at this time, then
you should follow the dialog instructions to allo
w .NET Framework 3.5 to be downloaded and installed. I
f you do not have
an
Internet
connection, then
you must exit the installation of SES Software 14 and proceed to install .NET Framework 3.5 using the DISM tool.


Please note that
it is important to first

install Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 before continuing with the rest of the installation of SES Software
14. The installer uses the components of
.NET
Framework 2.0 during the installation of SES Software 14; without
.NET
Framework 2.0, the
installation o
f SES Software 14 will fail.

If you have an Internet connection, then proceed with the downloading process

provided by the Windows Features dialog
;
.NET
Framework 3.5
will be downloaded and installed. The
SES Software 14
installer will then proceed with t
he rest of the installation process
.





March 28, 2013

6


Alternatively,

before starting the SES Software 14 installation,
Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5
may
be installed
directly
from
the Windows 8
facility:
Control Panel > Programs and Features > Turn Windows
features on or off
. (Note that
an
Internet connection is also required for this
method of installation
).




March 28, 2013

If you do not have
an
Internet connection at the time of the installation of SES Software 14, then a
n
off
-
line installation can be made
for
Micros
oft .NET Framework 3.5. T
he command
-
line utility,
DISM

(Deployment Ima
ge Servicing and Management
), which comes preinstalled on

Windows 8
, can be used to source the .NET Framework 3.5 distribution from the Windows 8 installation DVD
.


The command line bel
ow will instruct DISM to install Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 (NetFx3) without querying Windows Update (LimitAccess)
but, instead, install from the Windows 8 installation DVD (c:
\
temp
\
win8
\
sources
\
sxs).


DISM /Online /Enable
-
Feature /FeatureName:NetFx3
/All /LimitAccess /Source:c:
\
temp
\
win8
\
sources
\
sxs


The utility will then perform the installation of Framework 3.5 from the specified location. Once it has been installed, you
may verify from the
Windows Features

dialog that Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 h
as been installed.

C.

If you have installed Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 via Windows Features

(from the Control Panel)

or DISM, then
please
restart
the installer
for SES Software 14
.

T
he prerequisite,
Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0, Service Pack 2
, will

not be listed since
.NET
Framework 3.5 has already
been installed (it includes

.NET

Framework 2.0).




D.

Proceeding with the installation, the prerequisite,
Microsoft DirectX9 End
-
user Redistributable
, will be next in line for installation.




March 28, 2013

E.

Proceeding with the installation, the prerequisite,
Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable SP1
, will be next in line for installation.




F.

Proceeding with the installation, the prerequisite,
Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable SP1 Update
, will

be next in line for installation.




March 28, 2013

Core Installation
Phase

Once the core installation of SES Software 14 starts, please continue with its dialogs to select the options that you would n
ormally choose to suit
your working environment.

Driver Installation Phase

Once the installer has finished installing the files for SES Software 14, it will start the final phase of installing the dri
ver for the security dongle (if
the option,
Use Personal License
, was selected in the
License T
ype

dialog of the installer).



The driver that is
i
ncluded

with the distribution of the software

(14.0.380/14.1.40/14.2.18)

is not
guaranteed to work on all Windows 8 computers; thus, it is strongly recommended to cancel/exit
the driver installation.


A new version of the
HASP
driver was released in
March
2013 that is
fully
Windows 8 compliant
and it should be used

instead
. Please follow the alternative steps below to install the driver:

1.

Download the driver setup program,
http://www.sestech.com/common/postinst/hasp_driver/haspusersetup.exe

[13.7 MB],
to
a known location on your computer.

2.

Open a File Explorer and browse to the known location where the driver setup
program has
been downloaded.

3.

Run the driver setup program,
HaspUserSetup.exe
, and
install to

completion.

Configuring the Security Profile

The security profile may be set up by starting SESNetKey. This can be done from the
Search > Apps

section
.




In SESNetKey, add the appropriate information for the dongle that you will be using with SES Software 14

and save the configuration
.

Activating the License on the Dongle


Attach the dongle to
an available USB port of
your computer.


At this point

Windows will show that it is installing the USB device, HASP HL 3.25.


The red light on the dongle
will

come on, indicating that the system
has recognized
the dongle

on the USB port
.


The license on the dongle may be activated by starting SESLicenseManager.

This can be done from the
Search > Apps

section.





SESLicenseManager will issue a message that the license requires activation.




March 28, 2013

You can a
cquire access to the license file by either downloading it using the same credentials for downloading SES Softw
are. Or if you have been
sent the license file by email, then browse to it.
