Mystro Software Trusts Reprise

One Hill Solutions has used RLM in its product, Mystro, since 2014. Mystro is a server based application that helps biotech labs and other industries manage data collected from disparate instruments.


One Hill Solutions was a brand new company when it introduced Mystro as its first major software product. Their small development team did not have any experience with software licensing products in previous jobs, so they looked to Reprise Software for support.


Reprise Software’s software examples, documentation and e-mail support were critical in the early days to complete the implementation quickly. One Hill Solutions decided to use the node-locked, uncounted license type utilizing optional tag parameters to customize the license checks on their system.


Mystro intends to shift from a server based application to a web based application in the future, so the fact that Reprise provides a variety of deployment solutions is a huge plus. Mystro plans to use the RLMCloud solution after this shift.

Activation Pro

What’s the difference?

Reprise License Manager (RLM)

Software License Manager

RLM provides runtime checking that verifies that your application is licensed to run and that the current usage of your application is within the limits you have ser every time your application runs.

As a Software publisher, you integrate RLM into your product, and RLM keeps track at runtime of who is using the licenses of your software.

RLM can do this entirely within the client library (linked into your application), or, more commonly, your application makes a request of the RLM Lincese Server to check out a license.

The lincese server runs either on your customers network, or in the cloud if you are using our RLMCloud™ service.

RLM provides runtime checking that verifies that your application is licensed to run and that the current usage of your application is within the limits you have ser every time your application runs.

RLM Activation Pro

Software Activation Manager

Activation Pro is
used once when your customer purchases your software in order to retrieve the license which is specific to that customer.

Software Activation’s purpose in life is to get the licenses for your product to your customers with a minimum of fuss.

Activation Pro also has a server component wich we call the activation server.

Your application contacts the activation server and supplies a short text activation key, and in exchange, the activation server returns the license which enables your product.

Generally, this is done once, right after your customer purchases your software, not every time your software is invoked.
