"ACEN Web licensing enabled" option

Select to enable web licensing in PC Guard. Protected application will automatically handle all web licensing tasks in conjunction with Activation center server.


"ACEN Program ID" option  (mandatory)

Program ID value as defined in Activation center (ACEN). 

Note: This is not the same as Program ID value in remote protection settings! This is identification number for program in Activation center.


"ACEN Web service URL" option  (mandatory)

Full path (URL) to Activation center (ACEN) web service. URL must start with "http://"
 

"Make license alive (active) report to ACEN server" option

Select to enable license alive report to ACEN server. Additional settings:

- Timing (Select timing of the alive report.)

Available values: "on each run" and "once a day"

- If report fails (Select action in case alive report fails. This usually happens because computer is not connected to the Internet)

Available values: "do nothing", "show error" and "show error and exit"

"do nothing" - protection will just pass control to application.

"show error" - protection code will show error message and pass control to application.

"show error and exit" - protection code will show error message and close application.


"Check if license is removed from ACEN server" option

Select to enable check if license is removed from ACEN server. Additional settings:

- Timing (Select timing of the alive report.)

Available values: "on each run" and "once a day"

- If report fails (Select action in case alive report fails. This usually happens because computer is not connected to the Internet)

Available values: "do nothing", "show error" and "show error and exit"

"do nothing" - protection code will just pass control to application.

"show error" - protection code will show error message and pass control to application.

"show error and exit" - protection code will show error message and close application.

- If removed (Select action in case license is removed from ACEN)

Available values: "reset license" and "reset license and ban"

"reset license" - protection code will reset existing license and close application. Next time application is run it will automatically try to get new license from Activation center.

"reset license and ban" -  protection code will reset existing license, ban remote computer (!) from accessing Activation center and close application. Next time application is run it will display AWS_BannedError ("License can not be activated on this computer!"). Ban is set locally and not in ACEN so in case end user formats computer and reinstall software application will try to get new activation code from Activation center.


NOTES:

- If using both "Make license alive (active) report to ACEN server" option and "Check if license is removed from ACEN server" option with "show error" enabled and in case both checks fail two error messages (and this is usually the same error message) will be displayed to end user so it is recommended to enable only single "show error" option in this case (other one should be set to "do nothing"). In this case only single error message will be displayed.
