Special Laptop Requirements

The following requirements should be met in order to be able to install and run SES Software1 on a laptop:

  • Ensure that you have access to a local administrator account with a password. An administrative user log-in is required for installing the software protection key driver and the software itself.
  • You may use the software under the same administrative log-in session in which the software was installed. However, if you prefer to use the software under a non-administrative account (e.g., standard user), make sure that all of the default settings for UAC are turned on.
  • The laptop should have USB 1.1, 2.0, or 3.0 ports2. A USB port will be used to attach the software protection key (dongle) in order to enable the use of the professional version of SES Software applications.

1 SES Software will be offered on a USB 3.0 16 GB data drive as compliments from SES.
2 Older laptops may have USB 1.0 ports. It is not guaranteed that the software protection key will work with USB 1.0 ports.
