Frequently asked questions concerning licensing:

The BESA software does not start due to a licensing problem. What can I do?

The BESA Software is licensed using the Sentinel HASP (formerly Aladdin HASP SRM) hardware-based protection, which utilizes HASP HL keys (USB dongles). Only if a Sentinel HASP HL dongle with suitable licenses is available, local or on network, the BESA Software will run.

If you encounter any troubles with starting the BESA software, please make sure first that the Sentinel Run-Time Environment is installed properly

  • on the machine(s) where the BESA software should be started and
  • on the machine(s) where the dongle is connected to.

You can download the latest version of the Sentinel Run-Time Environment here. The Run-Time Environment contains the latest drivers for the Sentinel HASP HL dongle.


I get an error message "Failed to load library" during the installation of the HASP drivers. What can I do?

Please see the page Error message: Failed to load library for help with this problem.


Can I update an expired BESA license?

If your BESA license is expired, please check if a license update is available for your dongle here or contact our Sales Office for more information.

If you encounter any difficulties, please read the instruction HASP How to update BESA licenses.pdf which should help.


How can I configure who is allowed to use the BESA network license?
