Excel Software has announced QuickLicenseRT Linux for desktop software. IT implements the full QuickLicense runtime system for protection, activation and license management.
A company can protect software from piracy and increase revenue by supporting a range of license types, activation processes and advanced licensing features. During development, QuickLicenseRT Linux is used in conjunction with QuickLicense running on a Mac OS X or Windows computer. The developer configures all aspects of the software license with QuickLicense and builds a tiny encrypted Ticket file. That Ticket file is bound to a Linux desktop application with a few lines of programming code that sends commands to the QuickLicenseRT executable.
The runtime allows one software build to support Trial, Product, Subscription, Floating, Try/Buy or Educational licenses. The activation process for protected software allows manual activation without Internet access, semi-automated activation through a web browser or fully automated activation through an online activation server.
QuickLicenseRT Linux supports all major Linux distributions including Ubuntu, Debian, OpenSUSE, Fedora and CentOS on an x86 computer architecture. A single user license costs US$395 and includes royalty-free runtime distribution rights for any number of protected products or licenses.
The package includes a User Guide and the SendMessage test application to try all license types and commands without any programming. Go to www.excelsoftware.com for more info.
