> SoftwareShield License Manager
The SoftwareShield License Manager is a "multiple license interface" Windows application (a Win32 application) that you use to create, edit, compile and manage your SoftwareShield licenses and compile protected applications. The SoftwareShield License Manager is the "compiler" for your licenses and protected content that your team will use to quickly and easily create solutions that enable you to monetize your products through any channels you require.
The License Manager allows you to customize your license to effectively defeat attempts to crack or hack your licensing mechanism. Developing an equivalent level of security that SoftwareShield License Manager builds into each license would simply take far too many resources from your development team. You will save both time and money by using the SoftwareShield License manager to protect your investment, and focus on what your teams do best - making and selling good software.
The SoftwareShield License Manager allows you to configure your license so that the advanced cracker-prevention technology is enabled. This mechanism detects if the program is being watched by kernel-mode debuggers, or that someone is trying to de-compile it using hacker tools like SoftICE etc. If this kind of system intrusion is detected - your program will simply shutdown (optional).
The SoftwareShield License Manager allows your team to quickly and easily create different licenses for the same source code or binary of your deployed application. In the case of when you use IronWrap, changes to the source code are not even necessary. Your executables will be compiled into a wrapped package that encapsulates your chosen license model with the best possible DRM protection.This allows you to rapidly customize the behavior of your software for specific channels in minutes without recompiling your application from code.
With the level of flexibility that the SoftwareShield License Manager gives you, you can quickly create new licenses that meet the requirements of new customers and opportunities as they arise instead of committing major development time to redesigning a built-in licensing solution that works for only a single customer's situation.
