    Will this work if I only have the BES7 "update" and need to reinstall the software to a new computer?

    Yes, you need only install the software that came with the update. If you already had V7 working on another computer, then the dongle has been fully updated and has the licensing information built in. You may need to install the dongle driver first, and be sure to turn off any firewall and anti-virus/malware software prior to installation.
