Download and Install the SafeNet Sentinel HASP License Driver and FARO Remote Update System (RUS)

Install Icon


The HASP driver and RUS enable FARO software licensing. Both are installed when you install FARO software. If you do not use an internet connection with your FARO software, are creating a license server, or are having issues with the automated internet-based license activation inside FARO software you may need to manually install the latest versions of the HASP driver and RUS.

  • The HASP driver is the central component of the FARO software license processing. It also provides access to the SafeNet Sentinel Admin Control Center where you can view, administer, and manage FARO software licenses.
  • RUS enables you to manually activate or update FARO software licenses.

Both the HASP driver and RUS can be used on a stand-alone computer or on a network license server and its client computers.

Always make sure you use the latest versions of the HASP driver and RUS. They are backwards compatible, so you need not be concerned about using the latest versions with older FARO software. Using the latest versions helps you avoid licensing issues.

Uninstall the Old RUS

To uninstall RUS, find FaroRUS.exe and delete or rename it. The file's location is different depending on the type of computer you are using: Stand-alone computer, client computer, or license server. 

For a stand-alone computer or client computer

The RUS file is stored in the root of the folder where the FARO Software you are running is stored. If you accepted the file storage defaults when you installed your FARO software, the RUS file is in one of these folders.

  • C:\Program Files\FARO\<FAROSoftwareName>
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\FARO\<FAROSoftwareName>

For a license server

The RUS file could be stored anywhere. If you have followed the instructions for creating a license server, the file is stored in the C:\FaroRUS folder. If not, you can search for it.

Install the New RUS

  1. Copy the new FaroRUS<VersionNumber>-<date>.zip file you downloaded at the top of this article to the folder where you found the old RUS.
  2. Extract FaroRUS.exe to the same location as the old RUS file.
  3. Test that you can access the RUS.
    • On a standalone computer or client computer--From the Windows Start menu click All Programs > FARO > <FAROSoftwareName> > FARO RUS or FARO Remote Update System. This makes sure that the Start menu link to the RUS works correctly.
    • On a license server--Double-click FaroRUS.exe to run it. 
  4. When you see the RUS window, installation was successful. Verify that your version is now current.
