Install Hardware Key Driver

Before attaching your hardware key (dongle) to your computer, you must first download and install the Sentinel Pro driver. Instructions are provided below. After installing the driver, you may attach the hardware key.

If you do attach the key first, then Windows will likely assign to it an incorrect driver. To correct this situation, take the hardware key out of the USB port and then run the key driver cleanup utility (available on the Downloads page). Then reboot your computer.

  1. The Sentinel Protection Installer is available on our Downloads page.
  2. Once you have downloaded Sentinel_System_Driver_Installer_7.5.8.exe, open it to run the installer. The file can be found in your computer's Downloads folder, or can be opened from your internet browser. Sentinel Protection Installer, Welcome screenshot

Register Your License

Register on our website. This will enable you to retrieve your Durango License Code. On completing the registration form, you will be sent an email asking you to confirm your registration. This should occur almost immediately. You must open the email and click a link to validate your registration.

Visit the License Page to retrieve your Durango License Code. You will be required to enter your email and password before viewing this information. You will be prompted for your license code the first time you start Durango. Otherwise, your license code can be used to unlock your copy of Durango at any time by selecting About Durango from the Durango Help menu. Once you have entered your license code correctly, the key icon in Durango's lower righthand corner will change from Locked Symbol (key with red slash) to Unlocked Symbol (key with no slash), indicating that your copy of Durango is now unlocked.

If you are able to log in successfully but no Durango keys or license codes are displayed, then perhaps Diffraction International has not yet assigned your key to your email address. This may happen if you receive your Durango key through a third party. Contact technical support by email or phone so that we can correct the online database.
