Press Release: October 06, 2020
SOFPRO - Software Protection Labs has released new update for their software copy protection and licensing solution for Windows, .NET Framework and .NET Core Windows applications.
[+] ACEN web licensing: new (on failure) actions added to license alive report ("if report fails") and license removed check ("if check fails") tasks:
"exit" - protection code will close application.
"reset license & exit" - protection code will reset local license and close application
"reset license, show error & exit" - protection code will reset local license, show error message and close application.
[+] ACEN Web licensing: changed descriptions for existing actions and new actions added to "if removed" option for license removed check.
The following actions are now available:
"reset license, show error & exit" - protection code will reset existing license, show error and close application.
"reset license, ban computer, show error & exit" - protection code will reset existing license, ban computer, show error and close application.
"reset license & exit" - protection code will reset existing license and close application.
"reset license, ban computer & exit" - protection code will reset existing license, ban computer and close application.
[+] ACEN settings: "Show standard error messages" option added.
[+] ACEN settings: "Show exceptions" option added.
[+] ACEN web licensing: Custom exit error codes added to license alive and license removed tasks.
[*] Improved management of command line options for protected application.
[+] New command line options for protected application:
-PCG_CL_SN [serial number]
Use this option to set serial number from command line.
Serial number can be set for both locked and activated application. In case of activated application existing serial number will be replaced with new one.
If invalid, serial number will be ignored and no error message will be displayed.
ACEN web licensing: If this option is provided from command line application will automatically try to reactivate/activate license without displaying activation dialog box.
This option can be used for initial activation when used together with -PCG_CL_SN [serial number] switch. In this way serial number is set from command line and protection code is instructed to activate application without displaying standard activation dialog box.
It can also be used for reactivation of currently locked license after previous license was reset (for whatever reason). In this case original serial number information is still present on remote machine and instead of displaying activation dialog and waiting for end user to click on "Continue" button protection code will automatically try to connect to ACEN and reactivate license. If required, original serial number can also be changed from command line. In this case protection code will try to get new license with new serial number.
-PCG_CL_GET_SITEMID > output.txt
Use this option to obtain current site/mid codes from command line from protected application without displaying standard activation dialog.
This option is valid for applications protected with REMOTE protection method only.
Redirection to output file is mandatory. Site and MID codes will be written to output file in the following format: sitecode:midcode (":" is used as a separator).
Protected application will automatically close after writing site/mid codes to output file.
[!] Multiple other minor fixes, optimizations and security improvements.
