    I've also been working with NOVAR for over 8 years and mostly on national accounts stuff and if there was a way around the pik I wouldn't have it in my bag.

    I remember

    A while back there was a guy posting here that said he didn't need the Novar PIK (dongle, software key, hardware key whatever you call it) because he had edited the Novar startup .BAT file. Now I do find that a little hard to believe.

    yeah,
    the bat file only sets up your comms it has nothing to do with the hardlock.

    I talked with him and the explanation sounded bogus.

    Something like adding SET="nostinkingPIC" in the bat file.

    >over 8 years and mostly on national accounts stuff and if there was a way around the pik I wouldn't have it in my bag.

    You can add my 10+ years also.

    Good luck and I doubt you will get by it.

    Find one on ebay.

    Found the email.

    "The code to bypass the pik is: set_crypto_no_stinking_dongle. I think you have to run it as a batch file. I know for sure this is the correct code is just don't know how to implement it. A guy who used to work at Novar, (no longer does) showed me this quite a while ago when I was just getting into the controls biz. I didn't pay any attention at the time, because I had a PIK and wasn't too concerned with getting another one at the time. "

    Let me know if it works.

    We dont need no stinking Pik?

    From the post I have read so far this really seems like a nerdy legend but if not I sure could use the info needed to get past this PIK and look into some things. If any of you guys can shed some light on this I think everyone in this thread could rest a little easier knowing the truth is out there......

    I'll be sure to inform Novar you are giving away secret information.
