keygen for trial / licensed software

Recommended Posts

is anyone willing to give any ideas as to making activation keys for licensed software? You know so I can charge a small fee to have a liceance to use a software I provide?

I see allot of irony coming to an opensource forum asking how to make closed source code. I remember my roots I would not have the knowledge I have without opensource. However I pay for software either for entertainment or to simplfy some task.

I remember I was looking for screencapture software selling for $50 bucks a pop and I thought I can write this is autoit. If they had asked for $10 bucks I would have bought it.

As a computer technician I strive to see people enjoy using computers. I enjoy programming but I cannot program if I can't pay my elecricty bill. Any software I sell would have my best work put into it

I sold a program to my buddy Mitch for his window cleaning business it gives him an edge over his compition I worked 40+ hours on it and charged him $500. He uses the software almost everyday it saves him time and money... and quite litterally gives him an edge over window cleaners in the area.

I've thought about how I want the key generator to work. I want to use something like rsa encryption on a cpu id to give a unique key that will only work with that processor.

Can I use autoit to obtain a cpu id and would it always be unique? Can anyone suggest another type of hardware id and how I could retreave this information using autoit?

Share your feelings on this subject

purpose is to discourage hacked versions of my software

Please don't hessatte to flame me, I think that I have explained my case pretty well and I am interested in a solution as well as critisum

I don't see the need to explain your case for why you like to sell your software ... so thats out the door.

Besides you don't need a keygen or anything like that to sell your programs. There just to enforce the selling.

+ You apparently have not used the forum search feature or else you probably would have found these topic's on your own.

hello,

i don't know it my way is the securest, but i did this with a mixture of regread(product-id) and drivegetserial. then juggle a bit with both results and for example get a string like this: "816-425-254-QRIM-228"

the second step is, that i now let check my program if a folder named like this string exists on my http server. for each registration, i have to create a http-folder. in this way i could manage valid licenses. if i now want to delete a license, i just have to delete the http folder and the program wont start anymore.
