The License Manager makes it easy to administrate customer data and licensing information. Licensing information encompasses all the applications of a particular customer with detailed information at a module level. You can generate license files or tickets directly from the administration interface. The License Manager also makes administration and support functionalities available for interested parties.

The License Manager offers the following features

  • Maintenance of address and contact information

LICENSE - Lizenz Viewer

The License Viewer is a separate application. It covers all customer-side administration tasks:

  • Displays license status
  • Displays all users and the option to activate or deactivate them
  • Import of activation tickets by the user

License Viewer requires

LICENSE - Lizenz Server

The License Server is used to administrate licenses belonging to simultaneous users across networks (floating license). It administrates licenses centrally and processes licensing inquires in the network.

The License Server offers a concurrent user checking feature. If a computer running a licensed application sticks or an application crashes, this is automatically recognized and the license is enabled automatically. An active service has to be available on the server to do this.

License Server requires

  • Microsoft Windows NT/2000/ XP, oder
  • Linux

LICENSE - Web Activation Server

The Web Activation and Registration module is an out-of-the-box solution that makes it possible to activate or modify licences online. Only one cue is necessary and the LICENSE-protected application connects to the registration server and carries out the following operations:

  • Activate software copy protection
  • Alter licensing information - i.e. from the demo to the full version
  • Terminate time-limitation
  • Online license validation
  • The registration server checks to make sure that each ticket can only be redeemed once. Every action is logged on a database. This is done to make sure that tickets cannot be passed on to others and used more than once.

The Web Activation Server requires

  • Microsoft Windows NT/2000/ XP
  • Microsoft .NET Framework

The Web Activation Server is not delivered to end customers.

LICENSE - Software Development Kit
