    Dongle Updater not functional. Cannot load

    Uninstalled MC 6.0 under 10.7.5 OSX

    Then upgraded to 10.8.2 OSX

    Then installed my upgrade to MC

    upon MC application open:  Error Message:  Software Activation Failed because your license is not valid. etc. etc.

    Downloaded Updater.avd for 6.5

    Opened Dongle Manager - uploaded .avd into step 1 OPEN UPDATE FILE (successful)(

    Step 2: Test Dongle then states:

    "No dongle compatible with this update file found."

    However, dongle is still glowing green in my Tower.

    Dongle Manager cannot scan Dongle;  says: NO DONGLE FOUND

    Now I am out of ideas.  Can someone please help me upgrade to on a dongle?

    Thank you in advance.

    Dongle manager can be installed on any computer and the update be applied that way.

    I'd try it on a PC and see if that works. Once blasted you can then go back to the Mac.
