When trying to start RSTAB / RFEM, only the message appears:Sentinel HASPFailed to create the self-socket with error 10093 / WSANOTINITIALIZED.Likely Winsock DLL is malfunctional or was unloaded while the HASP API is still in use.This is an unrecoverable error!Abortion ...How can I solve this?
AnswerThe cause of this message is usually a defective video card driver.After updating the driver on the homepage of the graphics card manufacturer, you should no longer see the message above and start the programs as usual.
AnswerYou can examine this port using the Telnet client. To do this, the Telnet client must first be activated via the Windows internal components (see figure). If this is the case, you can start the following command at the prompt:
telnet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 1947 (with "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx" - IP address of the server)
If the entry follows an empty window, the connection is successful. If the Telnet client can not establish a connection, this will be output and your IT will establish communication from port 1947.
When using the new Sentinel network dongle, the changes are as follows:
1) The software package of this dongle includes the driver, License Manager, and Admin Control Center now. You can download it under the following link:
GUI Version (Graphical User Interface):
Command Line Version:
After unzipping the file, you can install the software package by using the command line "haspdinst.exe –i."2) The license service has been renamed from "HASP Loader" to "Sentinel LDK License Manager" and runs via port 1947 now (previously via port 475).
3) The file "nethasp.ini" is no longer required in the case that the client does not find the server in the network automatically. The new file is named "hasplm.ini" and can be created on the client in Admin Control Center (ACC). You can access ACC using the following link:
In the "Configuration" category, tab Access to Remote License Managers, you can enter the server IP and confirm by clicking 'Submit' (see Figure 01).
The "hasplm.ini" file is stored in the following directory:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Aladdin Shared\HASP\
