By default, Activation center is intended for managing licenses for programs protected with REMOTE protection method. However, it also supports programs protected with PLAIN/USB protection.

There are two main licensing models for program protected with remote protection:

Standard licensing

In standard licensing each license is identified by Customer, Order and Program and requires valid client account and order data in activation center.

Web licensing

In web licensing model each license is identified by Program and Serial Number pair only. No Client or Order entry is required.

Each of provided models has its pros and cons. Which licensing model you'll choose depends on your actual requirements and needs. Both licensing models can be enabled for same program.

NOTE: PC Guard 06.00.0300 and later versions include out of the box (no programming is required) support for web licensing model.
