Version 5.10 (July 2004)
========================

Known Issues
------------
The driver installer, haspdinst.exe, does not install drivers on Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 95 
platforms.

HASP HL drivers are not available for DOS applications. To run protected DOS 
applications you must install the corresponding HASP driver. 

Under Windows XP, a HASP HL key must have been previously connected to the computer to enable 
haspdinst.exe to display the correct HASP HL drivers version.

Under Windows 9x/ME, HL-Server won't detect Hardlock Server USB keys. You should 
install the required Hardlock drivers.

When running the HASP HL driver installer in a Terminal Server environment, the aksdrvsetup.log 
file is generated in the current userís directory. 

Older device driver installations sometimes overwrite the HASP HL drivers. You should run the
haspdinst installer (haspdinst.exe -i) to fix the HASP HL installation. This scenario is only 
pertinent to Windows XP/2003 platforms. 

The current version of the drivers does not support applications wrapped with HASP HL 
Envelope with overlay encryption enabled. Should you attempt to start these applications, your system 
will crash and display a Blue Screen. 

If you use USB hubs which do not comply with all specifications of the USB standard, your
Aladdin USB keys might occasionally lose their enumeration.  If you plan to 
use USB keys on Microsoft platforms, refer to the Hardware Compatibility Lists
at http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/hcl/default.mspx

Some USB controllers cause Microsoft platforms to hang or
display a Blue Screen. This problem is not related to Aladdin drivers.

There are known limitations with various PCMCIA card reader brands used 
on AMD64 platforms. Check for chipset compatibility in the hardware specifications provided by the
manufacturer the of card reader. 

Due to a problem with the hardware of the PCI crypto programmer card, in some cases a Hardlock key will be 
recognized on the CPC address, however, encryption and read/write memory functions will fail. To avoid this problem,
you should explicitly set the address where to search for the Hardlock key.
