student ripped off dongle (USB key) for plus 1 Husquavarna

since one of my students ripped off the dongle (USB KEY) for the auto digitizing part of my Husquavarna Plus 1 computerized sewing machine…what can I do…I called the store and they told me to buy another program…for $1500.00…I am a teacher and we won this machine from a perkins grant…I cannot raise that kind of $$ for this item…students have tried to break the code and run the program without the dongle…but so far,…no success…

can anyone help?


thanks,…gail

Have you tried contacting the manufacturer? I’m sure people loose dongles?
