If you are in the software development industry, perhaps a common shareware programmer, or an engineering manager, you need to protect your software. In order to prevent their software from being cracked or illegally used, all software developers will take various measures to protect their software. One of the most commonly used methods is the software registration mechanism.

WinLicense is a software registration protection system that combines Themida‘s protection function and advanced registration control mechanism, allows users to get started quickly without having to change any source code or have programming experience. It has the same level of software protection function as Themida and license management features, allowing developers to safely distribute the trial and full versions of their software.

WinLicense protects your code and data with multiple layers of encryption, automatically detects hacking tools, disrupts running code, data and APIs, prevents software crackers from restoring programs to source code, protects disassemblers and decomcompilers, and more. All in all, WinLicense provides protection and support for your copyrighted software with its original protection technology that makes it difficult for all hackers and crackers to break into your programs illegally.

Most different from similar products, WinLicense can cover the shortages of all existing software protection technologies: the outdated protection technologies, and the software operation is limited by the operating system (i.e., the software protection layer can only run in general mode, not in kernel mode). Part of the WinLicense code can be run in kernel mode, with a unique protection layer, so it can withstand the latest software cracking techniques.

// Key Features //

As Software Protector
  • Multilevel encryption to protect code and data in an application.
  • Advanced detection of cracking tools.
  • Scrambles executable code, data, and APIs in the application to avoid any possible reconstruction of the original application.
  • Protection against all disassemblers and debuggers.
  • SDK offers two-way communication with SecureEngine and the protected application.
  • Fully customizable protection options and dialogs.
  • Multiple Virtual Machine architectures for code virtualization against tracing/reverse engineering.
  • Plugin system to add your own code at specific stages in the protection boot code.
As License Manager
  • Possibility to create Trial versions with multiple different expiration types like: expiration by days, by executions, by specific date, by minutes, by runtime, etc.
  • Possibility to extend the trial period in an application with Trial Extension Keys.
  • Powerful engine to store the trial status in the system to avoid trial period resetting by possible attackers.
  • Possibility to create different types of license keys for different developer needs.
  • Lock trial and license keys to a specific country.
  • Machine binding, which allows an application to run on a specific computer only.
  • Custom trial counters to keep control of limited resources in your trial versions.
  • Independent password protection for both Trial and Registered versions.
  • Possibility to create your own automation system with help from the external WinLicense DLL.
  • Complete SDK with over 50 different functions.
  • .NET SDK support for Trial and Registered versions.
  • Database-driven implementation to keep safe records of all your software, customers and licenses.
  • Embedded generators to create license keys, trial extension keys, and passwords for an application.
  • Customization for all trial/registration messages with possibility to include/exclude them from being displayed.
