5.1i Install - After installing 5.1i, Modelsim Dongle is no longer recognized



Upon installing 5.1i, my already existing and working Modelsim can no longer find the dongle.

This can be verified by running "lmutil lmhostid -flexid" from a command prompt.

Rather than the expected "Flexid = 8-<some hex number>" it returns "FLEXID=7-0".


Try reinstalling the drivers from the modeltech directory, as follows:

for a Dallas key (the ones with the hole in the middle), run


for the Sentinel key, run


You'll need to reboot afterwards.
