After installing ArtiosCAD 7.60 or 7.70, the dongle key cannot be read even though the tuneopt file is placed in the common folder on the server or standalone machine.


Windows 7 does not have the SafeNet drivers pre-installed, so they need to be manually downloaded from and installed. The SafeNet driver is the only part that needs to be downloaded and installed.
