How Software
Activation Works

1

License Setup

Define the types of licenses to be delivered with software activation (typically trial, permanent node-locked, and permanent floating).

2

Key Creation

Upon purchase, create activation keys for distribution to your customers. Or create them in bulk, in advance.

3

Customer Interface

Build an “Enter Key” dialog in your product, prompting for the activation key, and pass the key to RLM via an API. Alternatively, set up a webpage for your customers to enter the activation key and hostid.

4

Automated Processing

Activation Pro and RLM handle the heavy lifting. They connect to the software activation server on your website, authenticate the activation key, record the transaction in your activation database, and return a license or an error status.

5

Status Check

You can check the return status from the API and decide whether to run or not.

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.
