1) Timing is dependant on a helper here on campus who generates licenses
from the information entered in the page you reference. That helper does so
when they can. The service is unfortunately not "on-demand" and there is no
way to implement that given they way ESRI deals with licenses.
2) Can you use a network to connect to the UW via dialup or VPN? If so, you
can access the license servers here on campus so you don't need a dongle.

Kathy, the dongle is not expired; the license keycode file is expired.
You can request a new file at
I have always received a code within hours, but I am a little worried that
the license-granting script might run once an afternoon, and you may have
missed today's license.
So go ahead and request a file. In the meantime, I will forward this to the
GIS group, asking
1) Does anyone know the details of the timing for granting licenses?
2) If it turns out that you are in a bind for tomorrow morning, is anyone
generous to loan you a dongle with license file, or even a machine?
Hey, everybody, I vouch for this woman. She has given me heart.
Hey, all dongle users, update your keycodes when they expire (September
10?). One user discovered this problem when on glacier.
