Download the new version of the Secure Update Utility.

Gemalto has upgraded their software, and you will need to use this updated version when you access the upw file to update your dongle. If you downloaded the file prior to 9 January 2012, you need this version . If you have other software that uses the Safenet Sentinel dongle, and if that software installed the update utility, you probably also have the obsolete version. To be safe, we recommend you download and install our updated version.


All SYNOPSYS™ documentation is now contained in the download file. That means it is always up to date, and you don't have to thumb through a paper copy when you want to look up something. We recommend that new users print out the Tutorial Manual, read it completely, and work the simple examples. The second component, the User's Manual, is too long to print -- but it is completely cross-referenced so you can find any topic, within seconds, on your monitor screen. When you run the program, type HELP UM to open the User's Manual, or HELP TM to open the Tutorial Manual. There are many ways to open the manual to a desired topic instantly. Read about them in Section 13.1 of the manual. This is probably the friendliest help feature in the software industry.

Prospective users are invited to examine a pdf file of the Table of Contents of the UM. Look it over, and if you agree this is an enormously powerful program, then download and install the demo version. Then you can read all the details.

RUSSIAN We also provide a pdf file of the Tutorial Manual in Russian. Click to download a zip file of the document.
