With AppProtect, anyone can click to protect a compiled application. Use it standalone or with the Safe Activation or WebActivation web server for automated license activation.
Select Application and Build
To build a protected application, open the AppProtect window, select the desired options and click the Build Protected Application button. The application is wrapped with an activation process that presents a dialog on first launch.
Enter Unique Password
Once activated, protected software will run on that computer without user interaction. Application files cannot be copied and used on another computer without a valid license.
The vendor can choose an activation process that either presents an Enter Password or Enter Serial Number dialog.
The Enter Password dialog shows a computer specific password number and requires a unique password from the vendor. The dialog may optionally include a link to the vendor's web site presented by the default web browser on that computer.
Enter Serial Number
Alternatively, the Enter Serial Number dialog prompts the customer to enter a Serial Number provided by the vendor during the order process. The activation process is then fully automated through a silent connection with the Safe Activation service or self-hosted, WebActivation server.
AppProtect can be used to protect a standard Mac OS X application (.app) or Windows executable (.exe). In addition to providing piracy protection, the vendor can apply a high-resolution icon to the application and enter parameters to configure the activation process. If an automated activation server is not used, the vendor can generate computer specific passwords with AppProtect to activate users of the protected software.
AppProtect on Windows can embed static data files directly into the EXE. AppProtect on Mac or Windows offers additional optional protection layers that can be enabled for specific applications. Use AppProtect to secure a MAX application, Unity game or even an Excel spreadsheet when used with OfficeProtect.
