Feature Release

Desaware Licensing System is a cryptographic based licensing system for .NET. Designed for per server/machine and component licensing, it is extremely easy to use and can be configured for both moderate and high security scenarios. With 128 bit end to end cryptographic licensing, the Desaware Licensing System does not depend on hidden files, registry entries or other invasive techniques.

Updates in V1.6

  • Native WPF Code Entry Control
    The version 1.6 machine license component includes a native WPF code entry control that is functionally compatible with the current Windows forms code entry control (.NET 3.5 framework required).
  • FIPS Compliance
    The version 1.6 machine license component is FIPS compliant. This functionality is enabled automatically and transparently on any system that enforces FIPS compliance through local policy. No changes are required to existing servers and the certificates created when FIPS compliance is enabled are identical to those created on other machines.
  • More Flexible Server Licensing
    The Desaware License Server is now also licensed for a domain/application on cloud/fallback server hosts. When you use the hosted installation feature to license a server, the domain/application root used to access the server will continue to work with that server even if it is running on different machines (as is common in cloud scenarios).
  • Flexible Storage of Licensing Certificates
    Previous versions of the DLS only allowed storage of license certificates in disk files. With the version 1.5 client update, you can store license certificates in isolated storage (machine or user storage), or completely take over storage and retrieval of certificates. For example: you can now store a license certificate in a local database.
  • New WebCodeEntry Control
    Previous versions of the DLS have included a windows forms based control for entering license keys. The version 1.5 client includes a new ASP .NET web control for entering license keys. This new control offers features similar to the existing CodeEntry control, and is AJAX enabled to provide rapid first-pass validation of codes as they are entered.
  • Increased Flexibility with System Identifiers
    The DLS has always allowed you to define your own system identifiers - the values that are used to identify systems during licensing. However, previous versions always included the default identifiers as part of the comparison (unless you modified the comparison algorithm to ignore them). The version 1.5 update allows you to discard the default identifiers entirely.
  • CodeEntryControl improvements
    The version 1.5 CodeEntryControl component and 1.6 WPF CodeEntryControl component include enhancements including the ability to paste installation keys directly into the control.
