Protect and License an Excel Workbook with Cloud License


No DLL, no EXE, no problem.

Allow corporate users with limited account permissions to download and use your macro-enabled Excel workbook without IT support.

Use ExcelCL to quickly protect and license an Excel workbook using Cloud License. Apply Serial Number activation to your workbook running on any modern Windows computer using 32 or 64 bit Microsoft Excel.

An Activation dialog is presented when the workbook is first opened. Using a Serial Number provided by the workbook developer, the user activates the workbook for use on their computer. An activated workbook can be moved, copied or saved anywhere on that computer and functions exactly the same as an unprotected Excel workbook.

The same license can be applied to any number of workbooks so once one is activated to a specific computer, all workbooks sharing that license can be used. Protected workbooks can be distributed to other computers, but will required Serial Number activation on first use.

For a simple Product license, once activated the workbook can be used forever on that computer without Internet access. For a Subscription license, Internet access is required on first use during each subscription period. The license can be disabled by the developer if the user chooses to cancel the subscription.

Together, ExcelCL and Cloud License support advanced features like the ability to securely move a license between computers or to enable additional features in the workbook from the server. These features will require temporary Internet access.
