Creating Software Licenses C# - Any recommendations?
Posted on 2007-11-23
How to create software license keys ? I understand there are numerous topics on it , but the question is unique -
I know no licensing is foolproff - bt its best to implement optimized licensing solutions so free copies of the so/w are not distributed. :(
The main issues are
- how do we track if the copies are installed in lot of machines, like Win Xp is allowed to!?
- Is the license key chosen after the client downloads the product - that is its created based on their machine unique keys (like n/w card no..) or do we distribute it? If so, how does our code recognize it?
- How foolproof any licensing method is?
Wanting answers from eXperts.
