Blancco related license issues might not always be related the software (Blancco 5, Blancco Drive Eraser, Blancco Mobile Device Eraser, Blancco LUN Eraser, Management Console, etc.). The HASP USB dongle can also be the source of the problem. Before contacting the Blancco Technical Support team, do the following:
Other issues which may occur:
|HASP key not detected (in Windows environment)|
The drivers have not been installed properly.
Drivers can be either downloaded by Windows or installed automatically when setting up Blancco Management Console
|HASP key is physically broken|
HASP dongle exterior or connector is damaged (bent/broken)
Red connectivity led does not light up when the dongle is connected
|HASP key's battery is dead||Blancco HASP Tool is able to detect a dead battery and will not function properly in such case|
|HASP key's clock is out of sync|
Sometimes the internal clock of a HASP drive may corrupt. Blancco HASP Tool reads the HASP dongle's internal HASP clock value.
If the number does not match the current time (or is not even close, for example: 2070010100), then internal HASP clock is corrupted.
