Machine code online validation

Hi!
I have a question about the option to validate the serial keys online, is it possible to validate the machine code too? because I see that the machine code is not validated.

I want to avoid storing the secretphase in the product source code, but I want to validate de machine code too.

I saw your suggestion "If you have an opportunity to validate the serial keys online, using for instance ASP.NET, and if you want your software to be activated online, before the users get access to it, then, this solution would be even better than just storing the private key (password/secret phase) inside your own project. If you don't want to create your own, please take a look at http://serialkeymanager.com/!"

Thanks

Hi Carlos!

Thanks for your message! Since yesterday there is new a feature that allows you to lock machine codes using serialkeymanager.com

Here is how it works:
  • you can specify the number of machines that can use a specific key
  • if a new machine is found, this is registered in the database (you can also do this manually).
  • a set of allowed machine codes can be specified (they have priority, i.e. always activated)
I have composed a small tutorial here (it's a draft) and I will most likely record a video with detailed instructions of how this can be achieved.

Sincerely,
Artem
