membership site with license manager system for software seller?

Hi,

I running a Wordpress site and I'm selling software online. I want to setup an automatic system that selling software, giving license after payment made successful, and clients have their own account on site, based on WP. Is there any system like this? Or could you give me any other system like this.

Thanks

There's nothing that I'm aware of that combines the sales with a licensing system for WordPress.  You are looking at two different things in the end.

Setting up a sale/download system in WordPress is pretty simple.  Adding licensing is something best done outside of the WordPress framework completely.  

A good discussion of the steps you need are here:

Specifically:

In my case I did it with the information sent to me by ClickBank or PayPal, I built an IPN "listener" that received the transaction details. I then use a piece of code that essentially creates an API key (a random unique string with some rules regarding formatting). the API key is stored in the user table, along with the user ID (I used the users e-mail address from the CB/PayPal transaction as the ID). I also mail the key to the user.

I saw some sites using vBulletin forum for private download. It connected with WP. Do you know about this?

If you google, you will see information to integrate vbulletin with WordPress but unless you already have a vbulletin install why would you go through the headache?

WP e-commerce, shopp, and other plugins are already set up to handle downloads after purchase.
