limited license settings

Limited license enabled

Select to enable limited license feature for protected application. (Default status: OFF)

There are four license limitations:

License validity period

Number of days from activation. This is default and only mandatory limitation. License will expire xxxxx days after activation. Valid values: 1-65000 days. (mandatory)

Fixed date limitation

Fixed license validity period. License will be valid only during limited period of time from start (Valid from) to expiration (until) date. (optional)

Limited numbers of run

Number of runs from activation. Licensed application can be run only a limited number of times. (optional)

Day of the month expiration

Monthly expiration on a specific day of the month. Licensed application will expire on specific day of the month. (optional)

Examples:

If day of the month is set to:

1 - application will expire on first day of any month. 

31 - application will expire on last day of any month. 

This means 31st day for months with 31 days, 30th day for month with 30 days and on 28th (29th for leap years) February.

30 - application will expire on 30th day except in February when it will expire on 28th (29th for leap years).

29 - application will expire on 29th day except in February when it will expire on 28th (29th for leap years).

Exact expiration date is determined by the day of activation:

If day of month is set to 1 and application is activated on first day of current month license will be valid until first day of next month (about 30 days). If it is activated on 15th of current month it will be valid until 1st of next month (about 15 days).

If day of month is set to 15 and application is activated on first day of month license will be valid until 15th of current month (about 15 days). If it is activated on 20th of current month it will be valid until 15th of next month (about 25 days).

NOTES:

- Default license validity (number of days) should be set to 31 day in case day of the month limitation is enabled.

- Protection code is tracking system time. Set "Reset license in case of invalid system time" option accordingly to your preferences.

- Set "Display license expiration counter" option if you want license expiration counter (number of days left and number of runs left) to be displayed on activation dialog box.

- By default, activation dialog will be displayed on each startup. Enable "Special key pop-up enabled" option to let your client choose when to invoke activation dialog by toggling special keys before running protected application.

- If required, displaying threshold can be set and in this case protected application will start displaying activation dialog with license expiration counters on each run xxx days before license expiration. In case special key pop-up option is enabled activation dialog can be invoked even before this option is triggered (by using appropriate special key).

- If 'Re-enable demo mode after license expiration' is enabled, protected application will revert to demo mode with default demo limitations (stored inside protected application) after license expires.

- Enable 'Reset limited license for this update' to reset existing limitations for new update.
