Been awhile since I've been here.. My wife just bought the Bernina 730 to
replace her 180. She also bought the V5 upgrade.
She would like to give the 180 and software to our daughter, however the
upgrade software requires you to insert the old dongle  along with the new
one to transfer the information to the new one but the dealer said it then
erases the old dongle making it useless. So much for giving the software to
our daughter.  Is this true and if so is there a crack for the V4 USB
dongle??
I know there is a crack for the old parallel port dongle.

Yes it is true that when a version is upgraded the upgrade V5 needs to read the
installed
previous version in order to confirm that your are actually "upgrading" and not
trying to use it
as a stand alone installation.  Once it "reads" the dongle (security device)
from the previous
version and confirms that it is a proper device, it will "brain drain" the old
dongle rendering
it useless.  So the old version of the software can no longer be used.

So, if the computer dies after the upgrade, you're screwed.

No.  Not at all.  Once the upgrade is done, THEN V5 will work (and install) as a
stand alone
version.  Just don't lose your NEW dongle as it will still be required to run
the program (same
as the older versions).
