0. NO LICENSING
ACEN is by default, intended for managing licenses for programs protected with REMOTE protection method.
However, ACEN also supports programs protected with PLAIN protection.
Program protected with PLAIN protection can be run on any computer and does not require activation. This means that no license management is required for such programs.
When adding programs protected with PLAIN protection ACTIVATION radio button should be turned OFF in program details panel.
There are two main licensing models for program protected with remote protection: standard and web licensing.
Each of provided models has its pros and cons. Which licensing model you'll choose depends on your actual requirements and needs for appropriate program.
Both licensing models can be enabled for same program.
1. STANDARD LICENSING
In standard licensing each license is identified by Customer ID, Order ID and Program ID and requires valid client account and order data in activation center.
2. WEB LICENSING
In web licensing model each license is identified by Program ID and Serial Number pair only. No client or order entry is required.
