USB software product license on VM hyper v
Posted on 2013-12-18
I have an interesting situation:
I have an old windows 2003 server that has an application that uses a USB product serial number, without that USB key plugged in to the back of the server, the software application will not work.
problem is the windows 2003 server is having hardware problems and I tried to virtualize it and was successful. problem is that the program won't run because it doesn't detect the USB key.
is there any way, to make the VM (windows 2008 R2, running hyper V) detect the USB key?
if hyperV won't do it, will VMWARE?
would I be able to move the OS to the NEW server (physical to physical). probably not right due to the drivers???
