Hi experts,

I want to hear you opinion about the idea of using "SageKey Security Package" together with an Access 2007 database (the database in this case will be a desktop application for about 50 users, with importing data for a few tables here and there).

Thanks   :-)

I have a client running A2003 Runtime with the Sage Security Package - which checks for proper licensing, etc., and it works without issue.

However, trying to get the app converted to A2007 Runtine, with Sage Key and Vista did not fly - at least a couple months ago.  It's still not clear where the issue really was.

That's about all I can tell you.

Thankes DatabaseMX   :-)
I would like to hear more opinions out there (if there are). I'm mainly interested in protecting the database from being distributed to other people other then the ones Iwill give them too. Do you think (all experts) that this is the right product for this situation, or is there somthing else better out there?
Also, is there any way (or product) that can prevent users from opening the databse other then in "Runtime Mode"?
Thanks again all   :-)

If you have the Sage Key stuff, an MDE which has disabled the Shift Key bypass, etc ... then that's about as good as it gets for Access.  It's very hard to get into my clients App - once installed with the Wise/Sage Key scripts.  If you try to open the app ... if you don't have the registration key, you really can't get in. Of course, I'm only talking about the Front End. Back end data is another matter entirely.
