Dongle discontinuations

Parallel dongles no longer supported


As Mentor Graphics upgrades licensing to MSL v2012_1 the old parallel dongles will no longer be supported. Over time this will affect all Mentor Graphics software. If you are still using an old parallel dongle you need to replace it with a new USB dongle.


Currently, the following releases are shipping with MSL v2012_1:

  • Expedition Enterprise Flow EE 7.9.4
  • Board Station XE Flow 7.9.4    
  • PADS Flow PADS9.5

For more information and instructions on how to replace your dongle, please contact InnoFour, or refer to Mentor TechNote MG577871
