How to Install Eplan Electric P8 2.2 Dongle Emulator on Windows 7 64 Bit
Eplan Electric P8 is a powerful electrical engineering design program that allows you to create and manage projects, design schematics, generate reports, and automate workflows. However, to use Eplan Electric P8, you need a valid license and a dongle that acts as a hardware protection device.
A dongle emulator is a software that mimics the functionality of a dongle, allowing you to run Eplan Electric P8 without the physical device. This can be useful if you have lost or damaged your dongle, or if you want to use Eplan Electric P8 on multiple computers without having to plug and unplug the dongle every time.
In this article, we will show you how to install Eplan Electric P8 2.2 dongle emulator on Windows 7 64 bit. This method is based on the MultiKey USB Dongle emulator by sataron, which supports Eplan Electric P8 versions 2.0 to 2.6.
Step 1: Download and extract the MultiKey USB Dongle emulator
The first step is to download and extract the MultiKey USB Dongle emulator from this link: https://lexcliq.com/eplan-p8-dongle-emulator-windows-7-64-bit/. You will need a program like WinRAR or 7-Zip to unzip the file.
After extracting the file, you should see a folder named \"MultiKey_18.0.3_x64_31052011\". Inside this folder, you will find several files and subfolders, such as \"dseo13b.exe\", \"install.cmd\", \"MultiKey.cat\", \"MultiKey.inf\", and \"MultiKey.sys\".
Step 2: Enable test mode and disable driver signature enforcement
The next step is to enable test mode and disable driver signature enforcement on your Windows 7 64 bit system. This is necessary because the MultiKey USB Dongle emulator is not digitally signed by Microsoft, and Windows 7 64 bit requires all drivers to be signed by a trusted authority.
To enable test mode and disable driver signature enforcement, follow these steps:
Run \"dseo13b.exe\" as administrator from the MultiKey_18.0.3_x64_31052011 folder.
Select \"Enable Test Mode\" and click \"Next\".
Select \"Sign a System File\" and click \"Next\".
Type or browse to the path of \"MultiKey.sys\" from the MultiKey_18.0.3_x64_31052011 folder and click \"OK\".
Click \"Exit\" and restart your computer.
After restarting, you should see a watermark on the bottom right corner of your desktop that says \"Test Mode Windows 7 Build 7601\". This means that test mode is enabled.
Step 3: Install the MultiKey USB Dongle emulator
The final step is to install the MultiKey USB Dongle emulator on your Windows 7 64 bit system. To do this, follow these steps:
Run \"install.cmd\" as administrator from the MultiKey_18.0.3_x64_31052011 folder.
A command prompt window will open and show some messages. Wait until it says \"Press any key to continue...\".
Press any key to close the command prompt window.
A new device named \"Virtual USB MultiKey\" should appear in your Device Manager under \"Universal Serial Bus controllers\". This means that the MultiKey USB Dongle emulator is installed.
