Windows Terminal Server Help for Older Program

Windows Terminal Server Help for Older Program

Windows Terminal Server Help for Older Program

I just upgraded my OS to Windows 7 Ult 64 bit.  I have a legacy FEM modeler program, FEMAP, that I am trying to run on it.  It is licensed through a 'sentinal security device' - a hardware dongle.

The program loads fine, but when I try to run it, it tells me:

"This version of Femap is not compatible with Windows NT Terminal Server.  Only the Network Licensed version may be run on Terminal Server."

There are two different licensing options for this program, a stand alone hardware dongle, or a network license.  I have the hardware dongle version.  It appears that the program is worried about installing the hardware version on a terminal server - maybe that it could be shared to multiple users with only one license.

Apparently Win 7 Ult 64 is acting like NT Terminal Server.  My question is - Can I somehow run this program (Femap) and disable the part of Win 7 Ult that is making it think it is terminal server?

I'm not IT guy, any help/ideas anyone has are welcome.
