Did you install DS-License server ?

Just about anytime you're dealing with a hasp you need to make sure you're logged onto the console and not an RDP session.

Is this the "DataCenter" version or the "Standalone" version? Seams to me as if this is the standalone version which need the old version of HASP key. Never seen this error message on the "DataCenter" version, if it's the standalone version, make sure to connect to the console!

the hasp key and license server are 2 methods of accomplishing the same goal.

If you have a hasp key you'll use the "stand alone" installation package, and attach the hasp key to the physical server that will run ds-system.

The license server replaces the hasp key for datacenter installations, and allows you to run ds-system on virtual machines.

the first thing I'd check if a stand alone installation isn't recognizing the hasp key is driver issues. look in device manager and make sure that the alladdin hasp key is properly recognized. you may need to go to the alladdin site and find updated drivers, Asigra can help you with that if you need it.
