Myth #1: Dongles are a problem for users because of driver issues.

Reality: Wibu-Systems has a patent on a driverless dongle. Doh! No driver, no hassle. How do we do it? We look exactly like a flash drive to windows, which has had native support for these devices since, oh, Windows XP or so. Since bad device drivers are responsible for at least 50% or all Windows BSOD, eliminating the driver basically eliminates the problem for the end user.

So if your dongles have been causing problems, or if you want a driverless dongle, step up to CodeMeter. You'll also get the best protection known on the planet.
