TEXA HASP Key Replacement

TEXA HASP Keys - HW Security Key for Diagnostic Software

Every TEXA diagnostic software kit comes with a HASP key which must be installed in a USB slot in the laptop/tablet for the TEXA diagnostic software to run. The HASP key must remain installed the entire time TEXA software is being used.

In 2022 TEXA started shipping a Micro USB HASP key which is much smaller than the old/standard HASP key, the Micro USB HASP key reduces the chance of damaging the HASP key, or worse, your laptop/tablet’s motherboard in the event of a fall.

It’s possible to replace your HASP key if it’s damaged or to take advantage of the new Micro USB HASP key.

When you receive the new HASP key it must be inserted into a USB port with the laptop/tablet online so TEXA can remote in to assign your licenses to the new key. This process can take a day or more depending on your time zone relative to TEXA’s time zone.
