I got a problem with Applicon Bravo in which the system just crash.
This system is running for more than 10 years and I wish to transfer
the software to another NT base system. Unfortunately, Applicon
company does not exist anymore and I got trouble on security even thou
I have the security dongle but unable to retrieve the key. Any
suggestion ? ( and I wish to run this thru virtual machine)

Bravo will run on a 32 bit system (xp or older) but not on a 64 bit system.
First you need a file named nodelock with your license information on it.
If your old system is still up or if your old hard drive still works (conec
t to differnt pc) copy this file and put on new pc c:\ifor\ls\conf\nodelock
. Check by going to start menu all programs ifor nodelock. this should bri
ng a list of your license's. If you are running Windows 7 64 bit there is a
free program on the microsoft web site called "windows vitural pc" in it i
s "windows xp mode"
Load your bravo soft ware on it ith your nodelock. If you have prodlems e-m
ail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are moveing to Edgecam but we have over
20 thousand programs and it takes a lot of time so I have to be able to ru
n bravo for a long time yet.

A quick google indicates the following
This appears to be very old [obsolete] software. I don't
know where you are located, but in the slightly longer run,
it would most likely be much more cost effective to upgrade
to a newer 64 bit computer running Linux, and an alternate
open source app replacing Aplicon Bravo. Much depends what
you are doing, but the successor products listed are very
heavy duty such as Catia [think AirBus].
Jon -- what's your thoughts?
You can download the linux operating system, with the basic
apps [office suite, browser] at
http://www.ubuntu.com/ (among several free distributions).
Most of the have a number of languages besides English which
can be specified during installation.)
FWIW -- you can also install this on an XT level system,
which generally improves performance, if purchase of a 64
bit system is out.
After installation, an applications catalog will be
available listing thousands of free open source apps
available for the download.
A quick google search on [cad parametrics linux] returns
283k hits, including
Let the group know how you make out, and post again if you
have more questions.
