HASP driver / USB-dongle

Description

I have a Windows XP/SP3 guest on a Mac OS X 10.6 host and try to run some software that is copy-protected by an USB dongle/HASP key (Aladin/Flexnet) - actually via a licensing system "flexlm". Guest additions 3.2.8 installed.

As soon as I select the USB dongle in the little "taskbar" below the Windows screen, Windows beeps and displays "New Hardware Found". The driver for the dongle installed without problems, it is found automatically by Windows. It seems that everything is ok. However, the dongle is somehow not recognized. The only error indication is that I get a "Missing dongle Driver" error from a diagnostic program (lmutil).

I guess that some USB stuff gets lost in the VM.

(Same procedure on a "real" PC works fine.)
