Also features delayed activation, dual licenses

Excel Software today updated their QuickLicense tool to version 5.0, adding subscription licenses, a subscription grace period, delayed activation, quick validation for plug-ins and multi-threaded software, dual licenses and more. The code communications with an activation server under the developer's control or through Excel's own Safe Activation service. The program also checks for versions and current upgrade pricing.

The new version brings the option of subscription licenses that can begin on fixed calendar periods or based on the activation date, and compensates automatically for time zone differences or even temporary loss of internet connectivity. Developers can either add the QuickLicense commands directly to their source code, or use the included AddLicense wrapping tool that adds it to a compiled executable without additional programming.

QuickLicense v5 also adds delayed activation, allowing users a chance to try out a full-featured version of the application for a limited time until activation is required. Instructions or a license agreement can be presented to the user prior to beginning the activation process.

Also new is the ability to manage a dual license, for example allowing a limited feature set until activation is purchased, or handling allowing multiple installations on a network.

QuickLicense is $595 for the standard edition or $995 for the Pro version on Mac on Windows. The license includes royalty-free runtime distribution rights for any number of products or licenses on each platform.
