Software arrived today. Again, a couple days later than estimate. Package was WELL wrapped though.
07/2013 Xentry/DAS/WIS/EPC running native in XP pro on a Dell 630. Popped HDD into an external bay, scanned with AVG, Kasprsky and Malwarebytes. Zero hits. A bit amazed at that actually.
Install HD into laptop and booted up. no prob. Made sure I wasn't hooked up to internet and got WIS and EPC going just fine. Xentry , on the other hand, took a few hours. The actual start keys weren't that difficult. Getting beyond the " Security Key Required " message took an email to the seller. Got an answer within a couple hours though with the appropriate key based on "hardware fingerprint".
Too late tonight to go try it out, that's a project for tomorrow.
All total to date the cost has been: $413
Dell D630 ( 2.1 Ghz processor, 120 gb HDD, 4 g ram ) = $81 + $15 shipping Ebay
C3 Multiplexor = $225 shipped, source is in first post
Xentry/DAS on Dell HDD = $93 shipped ( thru DHgate.com )
