Hello Experts... I wonder if this can be done. I've developed an application in Delphi programming language, and in order for users to activate the demo of it, they need to get an activation code (...long story as to why). Anyway, the code generator program is a local Windows software that I have on my computer ("Code-Lock")... but I'm wondering instead of me being occupied with sending out activation codes to users, is there some way I can "automate" this and let the users go to a website and get their own code - everybody wins this way.
Ideally, I'd like to tell my demo users to go to a very simple webpage that lets them enter only 2 things - a computer-specific code that my demo generates on their system, and a "Username" that they just make up. So just 2 fields. They could just click a "Submit" button to send these two fields to a "web version" of my "Code-Lock" code-generating program (see screenshot attached), then an activation code is generated for them, and sent back to the webpage and displayed to them.
In the attached screenshot of the code-generating program ("Code-Lock"), the 2 items they would submit are the ones circled in green - these items would need to be plopped into the appropriate fields in Code-Lock, then the items circled in red would be filled in automatically (they always remain constant). Then the "Generate Key" button would need to be invoked with the resulting activation code being shown in the area circled in yellow. My hope is that all this could be done invisibly to the user, and then the final activation code from the yellow circled area could be displayed on the webpage to the user.
A lot to ask, and maybe it's just not possible... what do you think?
