List of HASP Device Driver Versions Since V4.02 (May, 2000)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This device driver installer supports the Win32 and Windows x64 platforms. 
The installer detects the operation system version at runtime before installing 
the relevant drivers.  

Upgrade Note
============
When upgrading the driver, make sure that no running service is currently using the
driver. Although the install program can terminate applications acessing the driver, 
it cannot terminate running services. If for example the HASP License Manager is running as a
service, you must stop the service before upgrading the driver.

The list below includes new HASP Device Driver features, improvements, bug fixes, and other 
relevant information. It is arranged in descending chronological order.
