In the case of a rental, a time limit is added to the dongle according to the quotation. This time limit can be extended with the agreement of EOMYS. In this case, EOMYS will provide you with 3 files:

  • DinkeyChange.exe: This program enables to update the information in the dongle
  • UpdateDongle.ducf: This file contains the new information for the dongle
