This is the mail address where you will receive computer specific license requests if you have specified the “Computer Specific” option into the Licensing Registration Options page.

Release Date

The release date will be used to validate the license maintenance plan if you have specified the “Maintenance Plan” option into the Licensing Registration Options page. The license will be considered valid if the release date of your application is older than the maintenance plan date specified in the license.

  • Time Limited - The trial period consists in a limited number of days. Counting starts from the day the application is installed.
  • Uses Limited - The trial period consists in a limited number of uses.

Trial Extension

Allow the user to request trial period extension

By default, your application trial period is extended only when you release a new version. However, there may be justified cases when users need to extend the trial period.

You should decide how the user will contact you from the “Request trial extension” link of the Extend Trial page in order to request the trial extension code.

  • By Mail - a predefined mail template that will include your contact address will be displayed.
  • On Web Site - the contact web page will be displayed.

Codes

These are the codes that can extend the trial period. You must send one of them to your user for trial extension. You can modify the codes that can extend the trial period of your application using the “...” button.

ImportantThe end-user will be able to use a code only once. To further extend the trial another extension code must be used.

Disable further extension at a period of time after installation

Here you can specify during how many days after installation the end-user can extend the trial.

To allow the user to always extend the trial period no matter the time passed since installation you must use a value of "0".

Warning!By not setting a limit to trial period extensions the security level of the trial is decreased.

Platform

The licensing library can be either 32-bit or 64-bit library. The application using the library must be compatible with this type. Here are some libraries details and compatibilities.
