We used to have the parallel-port FLEXID dongle back from 2004 and using for ModelSim PE-vcom and PE-vsim in our desktop. The license file should be still good until 2033 (please see the below). Now we are starting another design and wondering how to reinstate/replace these FLEXID dongles?
I just read from this communities and understand we need to replace these FLEXID with USB hardware key first. How I can verify if my licensing file is still valid and how to start the replacement process?

The license file looks valid albeit an older format than what we now deliver. The version date 2004.08 can run Modelsim PE 6.0 or older, which includes support for the USB hardware key. If you can send me (firstname.lastname@example.org) your contact info I can get a request going with Order Fulfillment, to find out how we can get your parallel port key(s) upgraded to USB.
