-Corrected an issue where an error message regarding the program “pnputil.exe” was displayed during installation
-Improved error reporting to Windows event log
-Corrected an issue in the “Request and Install Additional Client Licenses” tool where the tool reported that an update (.upt2) file was correctly installed but no change was made to the hardware license key

Changes in N2KServer ® version 3.0.3 from version 3.0.0(8-2012):

- USB100 Drivers updated to version 2.0.0.4 for better stability. The installation routine should update the drivers on the PC without additional effort required on the part of the user.

- Support added for new gray hardware license keys (dongles) which can support the N2KServer function on a Windows PC and also on the upcoming IPG100 Internet Protocol Gateway. The new dongles can be distinguished from the old dongles by the Maretron logo etched into the metal case on the new dongles. N2KServer will continue to support both the old-style and new-style dongles, but the new-style dongles will be required for use with the upcoming IPG100 Internet Protocol Gateway. If a customer has an old dongle and wishes the use the IPG100 Internet Protocol Gateway, Maretron will exchange the old dongle for a new dongle. If a customer has an old dongle and is not planning to purchase an IPG100, there is no need to exchange the old dongle for a new one.
