What is the difference between a soft dongle and a dongle stick and why do I need it?
The soft dongle and the dongle stick are both used to protect our software. Soft dongles are linked to only one computer and are used mostly for trial licenses or student licenses. In other cases, dongle sticks are used. They can be plugged into any computer where TYPE EDIT is installed if you have internet connection or your license file. This offers more flexibility to the users around the world.
