Chief X1 dongle key

Recommended Posts

Hello Designers.  I am just getting back into design here in Boise. I was waylaid by the crash of 2007 like many. The last version I upgraded to was X1. I have lost my dongle though and Chief headquarters does not have any and are not sure when they will get any in. Does anyone have one they would like to sell me. Please contact me if you do at bradssidejobs@gmail.com.  It would be very much appreciated.

Hi:

 

CA won't have any - ever - way too old

 

I donated mine already to someone who lost theirs

 

CA allows donations - not sales - to verified owners of a license

 

I asked for $5 to cover mailing

 

hopefully someone will work with you and CA to get you one

 

however, another choice is to create a search on EBAY for Chief

buy another X1 with the dongle or maybe even upgrade to a newer version

 

I would skip X3 due to a horrible library system that required subscriptions etc

I would go for at least X4 as it has annotation sets and lots of other nice features

 

each release brings nice new features

 

you will also find "hassles" trying to run ancient software on newer PC's

 

EDIT:  you should upgrade to X10 - anyone in business should keep current for many, many reasons

CA now has a rent to own package

I know your pain, yesterday I lost my hardware lock for version 10. I know this is a shot in the dark, but, I'm hoping that someone has an unused one laying around. I'm certainly willing to pay for it. How would I get this out to the greater community?

Thanks for the alternative options

William:

 

no one is allowed to sell you a hardware lock

 

I have donated older locks to licensed users with coordination of CA's customer service

 

I only asked for $5 to cover mailing cost

 

unfortunately, I have already donated my ver 10 key

I think I sold my dongle to Wendy for $59.99.

If you haven't already found one, I have one you may have.

 

Check with CA headquarters and make sure it's allowable.

They should like to have you back in the family

I gave mine to someone here only to find he received an empty envelope  with the dongle missing.

I've donated 3 so far

 

I wrap them in bubble wrap and then cardboard
