Geosoft External API
Geosoft Oasis API interface
NB this is required is you are going to use WinDisp, GridView or DataView to view compressed Geosoft grid files or Geosoft database files. The files in this install set will be copied to the directory C:\Bin\SciComApp and you need to add this directory to your path. To make life simpler, the installer now adds the folder to the path as part of the process. Note too that you need to install this API even if you already have Geosoft Oasis/Montaj installed on your computer.

Sentinel SuperPro Driver
Download the dongle driver from the Sentinel SuperPro link at
If you have trouble with this link, try this install set:
Sentinel Protection Installer 7.6.5.exe
Troubleshooting the dongle:
If you have installed the driver and inserted the dongle and the program does not recognize the key, open up the Windows device manager, click on the USB controllers device to expand the list and check if you have a SafeNet USB SuperPro device listed. If it isn't or has a yellow exclamation mark against it, then the driver isn't loading correctly. In this case, there are utilities for removing the Sentinel System driver that do more than the Windows uninstall does. You should try running the relevant version (32 bit or 64 bit) from the page:
Then run the driver installation program again and see if the dongle gets recognized.
If that doesn't fix the problem, download and install the Sentinel Medic program from the link:
Then run the program with the key installed and click on the Troubleshoot button and see if it reports any errors. Hopefully that will throw some light on what is happening.
