Support for Dinkey and Dinkey Pro/FD
These support pages are for Microcosm customers. If you are an end-user of software that is protected by one of our products, please contact your software vendor. We are not able to support you directly. If you purchased your Microcosm product through one of our partners, please contact them for support. For presales and general enquiries, please use our enquiry form.
1. Use the Latest Version
The first step in troubleshooting problems is to check that you are using the latest version of the Dinkey Pro/FD SDK (or legacy Dinkey SDK).
If your problem occurs while using one of the SDK utilities, try to reproduce the problem using the latest version of that program. If the problem occurs in your protected software, create a new locked copy of your software using the latest DinkeyAdd (and the latest API libraries where applicable), and then see if the problem still occurs with this new version of your software.
If you cannot use the latest version for some reason, make sure that you mention which version you are using when contacting our support team.

The Dinkey Knowledge Base provides answers for all the most common questions and problems relating to Dinkey and Dinkey Pro/FD. The knowledge base also contains descriptions for virtually all Dinkey and Dinkey Pro/FD error codes, including common causes of these error codes and how to avoid them.
