Sample of the e-mail activation notice is provided as a screen shot. LicenseDNA supports online, offline and via consumer portal activation related services. 85% of the support calls are specific to this event, therefore, LicenseDNA leverages a number of communications options to ensure the consumer is informed about the activation process and information. Additionally, unlike industry standard lock and key activation process, LicenseDNA has not such encrypted logic included in the key, but more so the encoding logic and decoding logic resides on LicenseDNA secure server. The activation code is information about the product - does not include any information about the consumer so by design LicenseDNA is much more secure. more..

Trial ware - Key Activation & Module Definition -- Interface
LicenseDNA web services allows the publishers to define what type of trial they want to provide their potential customers. There are no limits on the number of modules which can be restricted or defined within the trial mode of the product. Further more, the publisher can include a single key for the entire product trial or specify individual keys per module. Additional parameters include the number of days available for the trial which will automatically restrict use of the application when the trail days expire. Delay parameter is used with the "x" factor, which delays the application to launch. This provides a significant advantage to freeware products where the product takes incremental time to open when this method is in use. At some point it becomes too long for the user and the consumer will spend the money to buy the product to remove this delay. more..
Client, Server, Applet, Web Application, Mobile Application -- Interface
LicenseDNA upon registration provides the publishers with a complete set of instructions with integration options. This includes pre-built API, DLL, integration scripts and documentation. Publisher's developer is requested to review this information carefully and then integrate the LicenseDNA service as required for the application. There are no restrictions on how to interface with LicenseDNA services and there are no required modules required for interfacing with the service, e.g. upon de-install of product by consumer, LicenseDNA recommends directing the consumer to an automated survey form to gather more information about why the consumer decided not to purchase the product. However, this is up to the publisher to interface this web service module. more..
