I have a old application that requires Hasp in order to works, but I have the need to change the old laptop with a new one, how I can solve this issue with the Hasp lock, is there any converter that works, or an application to simualate this Hasp.

Get a USB to parallel converter maybe ? they provide the laptop with a parallel port for the dongle to talk via.

If you HAVE to use HASP and dont have a parallel port and dont want a converter then you are stuck.

A PCMCIA parallel port may be a better substitute than a USB converter - this one has feedback from someone who could not get a USB hasp and got it to work: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16839158008

Agreed PCMCIA adapters are more reliable than USB but it depends on the security used on the dongle.
If you've got a PCMCIA slot on your new laptop - Express Card is probably more likely now (and you can get Express Slot/Parallel adaptors too) see if you can find a shop who'll let you have a sale or return deal to see if it will work for you.  After all you could just take the HASP and laptop to the store.

Are you able to copy the software across OK?
