I will start this post by saying that I am, in no way, associated with 1Way or Atma Software. I just think it is a great product and more developers, especially independent ones, should know about this product.
1Way is an ActiveX Licensing component by Atma Software. The product offers a secure and flexible way to create time limited trial versions of your products at a very affordable price. License Keys (Serial Numbers) can be generated to unlock the product. It is also flexible enough to allow you to unlock “parts” of your application if you choose too.
It has basically “drop in” support for online validation for your licenses on your own website, which allows you to limit the number of computers that can use a particular serial number and track the serial usage.
256-bit AES encryption, SHA-256 hashes and data redundancy are used for all information that is saved.
Since it is an ActiveX component, it is easy to implement in almost any programming language. Including C#, VB.NET, C++, Java, PHP, Delphi, Python, just to name a few.
- Registration can be permanent or they can expire
- Serial Numbers can be set to expire.
- Works on all versions of Windows
- Users cannot get a new trial period by reinstalling
- 1Way checks for changes in the System Date
- Trial periods can be extended and registrations changed via serials
- 1Way is entirely under your own control
You can purchase 1Way for a single individual, or a company with less then 3 employees for $39.00 USD, or a Commercial License, for a company employing more then 3 employees, for $89.00 USD.
You will not find a product that works this well, this flexible, and with the great support that Atma Software offers for anywhere near this price.
