General Notes about Hardware Locks

  1. Remote Desktop cannot be used with single-user/standalone locks, only with network locks as stated in Safenet Sentinel's User Manual (pg 28):
    • "Please Note that if you attempt to run a Sentinel Key protected application in standalone mode via a remote client (Terminal Server, VNC, WinXP remote client...), the software protected with Sentinel keys will not allow this for security reasons. You will need to run the software while directly logged into the machine."
