Actually, yes. I have one. May not do much good, though, since a specific version of the install floppy is required, and I haven't located that yet, nor have I located the NetSentinel hardware key; this was in a whole box of CD's from a computer reseller, and there are some other goodies in that box that I really need to go through, like old Seagate Backup programs, Cheyenne backup, Compaq CD's, WIN95 A&B CABs, and others; I have a whole box of miscellaneous hardware from that reseller, and the NetSentinel key might possibly be in there somewhere. Here's the contents of the 'version.197' file on the CD:

Were there versions of this that did not require a dongle? I purchased the full set in 1999 when working at a computer store as a tech. I don't remember needing a dongle to use/install this. When I left the store in 2000 of course the software stayed, having been purchased by the store.

I believe there is a version of it labeled/branded "Support on Site for Hardware". I have a set of thee discs, 1st quarter 97. Install was off CD iirc and no dongle. It's got Micro House and Ziff Davis Interactive branding.

What is the newest environment this will run under? Doesn't work in Windows 10 - complaints that 16-bit mode is unsupported.
