However, some users may want to use a dongle emulator instead, which is a software that mimics the dongle and allows the program to run without the physical device.
In this article, we will show you how to install Eplan P8 2.2 dongle emulator on Windows 7 64 bit. This method is based on the MultiKey USB Dongle emulator, which supports various types of dongles and operating systems.

Step 1: Download and Extract the Files
The first step is to download the files you need for the dongle emulator. You can find them on various websites, such as [^1^] or [^3^]. Make sure you download the correct version for your operating system and Eplan P8 version. For example, if you have Eplan P8 2.2 and Windows 7 64 bit, you should download Eplan P8 2.2 Dongle Emulator 18 [UPDATED].zip.
After downloading the file, extract it to a folder on your computer. You should see two folders inside: MultiKey64 and Eplan P8 2.2 Dongle Emulator.
Step 2: Install the MultiKey Driver
The next step is to install the MultiKey driver, which is the core of the dongle emulator. To do this, you need to disable the driver signature enforcement on your computer, which is a security feature that prevents unauthorized drivers from running.
To disable the driver signature enforcement, follow these steps:
Restart your computer and press F8 repeatedly during booting until you see the Advanced Boot Options menu.
Select Disable Driver Signature Enforcement and press Enter.
Wait for Windows to load normally.
Once you are in Windows, open the MultiKey64 folder and run install.cmd as administrator. This will install the MultiKey driver and create a virtual USB port for the dongle emulator.

The final step is to copy the dongle data file, which contains the license information for Eplan P8 2.2. This file is named eplan.dng and it is located in the Eplan P8 2.2 Dongle Emulator folder.
Copy this file to C:\\Windows\\System32\\drivers folder and overwrite any existing file with the same name.
