As far as I know, Kodak no longer provide USB licence dongles, all licences are now managed through their servers.

Hahahahaha - You didn't get the memo?
EVERY major software company is now 'leasing' their product.
Got to make those shareholders happy. . . . .

You can still purchase a permanent licence, it's your choice, but it still needs to connect to the licencing server to verify validity from time to time
We have Prinergy and Expo as permanent licences, and Insite & KPS as monthly.

We went round and round with Kodak for months.
The permanent license just kept bouncing off on an irregular basis.
Then when the ?new? version came out they said that they couldn't fix the old version because it was now 'unsupported' and to get support for the new version I would have to pay for the new version and the service contract which just so happened to come to roughly the same dollar figure as if I had just paid for the floating 'lease' license in the first place and every future 'update' would be paid and if I skipped an update they would just add the price to the next upgrade.
Told them 'no thanks.'
We are suffering - slightly - with only the one floating Preps license but we are glad we didn't buy the complete Kodak Kool-Aid package.
We are using a different product for digital presses which works just fine thank you.
And we LIKE their products.
Sigh.
