Hi .. I've developed few software that needs proper license management and key gen.  I currently have a utility that generates code keys for each product that we install.  The problem is that once the code key is generated, it can be re-used on any number of machines.  It also does not give use the ability to deploy more than one license level.

Am looking at any open source, sample code or 3rd party tools that can help with license management and key gen. Ours is not a big dev shop so purchasing expensive license managers not economical.  Any help or push in right direction much appreciated.
