Black Wolf, WI (PressExposure) January 14, 2010 -- A software license is a legal instrument managing the usage or redistribution of copyright protected software. Skater .NET Licenser is Software Authorization tool designed specifically to help secure .NET software programs and to provide license control and user validation services.
You can choose between two ways on how to implement your application licensing by using .NET Licenser. There are .NET Licenser interface that is incorporated in Skater .NET Obfuscator and .NET Licenser API assembly that is a stand-alone .NET library.
By using Skater .NET Licenser interface you will be able to implement licensing without coding. However this way has some restrictions.
.NET Licenser API assembly gives you ability to program the licensing features in your application source code. By using .NET Licenser API you will be able bound your licensed application with user's hardware and check user PC unique code trough authentication web-service. Also by using the web-service you may block your application at user's PC if a license has been refunded by user.
By using Skater .NET Licenser interface you do not need to insert additional instruction/code lines into your .NET application and do not have to make a reference to an external assembly dll to implement licensing features in your .NET executable. .NET Licenser will insert the licensing subroutines and settings into your compiled .NET application bytecode. Just open your exe file in .NET Licenser interface, make licensing settings, and run Licenser. All added licensing subroutines and settings will be well protected and obfuscated by using Skater .NET obfuscator techniques.
.NET Licenser is Registry-based licensing management tool. It implements a licensing system that checks for the availability of a specific Registry key that contains a corresponding value. Your licensed application itself implements no code to write the Registry value but .NET Licenser inserts into your application subroutines that will do that. Registry keys will be set up by the installation/registration licensed application, and since most applications use the Registry anyway, this does not pose a significant development limitation.
Licenser is helpful for licensing applications written in any language and designed under Microsoft .NET Framework (C#, VB.NET etc). It supports .NET Frameworks 1.0, 1.1, 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5.
.NET Licenser works by providing secure cryptographically encrypted license keys. This assures an easy way to activate .NET application from demo/evaluation to fully functional version. .NET Licenser uses a cryptographic encryption to generate and verify license keys.
.NET Licenser is a functional software tool for complete license and customer management. Along with Skater .NET Obfuscator it helps you to prepare your product for protection, manage license, encrypt your code and data, send e-mails to registered customers and so on.
.NET Licenser allows you to generate a secure cryptographically encrypted license key after your application has been registered/purchased on-line. Then you can provide customer with the Registration ID key by sending e-mail.
.NET Licenser is an exact software licensing tool for .NET developers who would like to:
Protect software products from getting pirated
Looking for easy real-time license management
Need effective and simple software activation
