AppProtect 2 to Protect and License Mac and Windows Applications

By Harold Halbleib

AppProtect applies protection to a compiled Mac or Windows application using a computer unique password or automated serial number activation. AppProtect adds additional protection layers and ability to embed static data files into a Windows EXE.

Excel Software announced AppProtect 2.0 to protect Mac or Windows software.  AppProtect applies protection and a vendor controlled or fully automated online activation process to a compiled application in minutes without programming.

AppProtect wraps a Mac or Windows application with an activation process that requires a computer unique password or Serial Number on first launch.  The software vendor can generate passwords with AppProtect.  Alternatively, AppProtect works with an automated activation server.  Excel Software provides vendor accounts for the Safe Activation service or a vendor can self-host an activation server using WebActivation.

AppProtect 2.0 on Windows adds the ability to embed static data files into the executable.  For an application constructed from an interpreted language or that requires external data files, the unprotected files are are no longer accessible by the user.  This process protects the source code, allows a secure license to be applied and simplifies the user experience since the entire application is distributed as a single file.

Max/MSP is a graphical application development environment from Cycling 74.  AppProtect has encryption and decryption features that enable Max5 programmers to protect and license the software they create.

AppProtect 2.0 on Mac or Windows supplements the standard protection available to all applications with five additional, optional layers of protection.  Each protection layer works independently so the developer can customize the protection for a specific application.

AppProtect can be used to protect a standard Mac OS X application (.app) or Windows executable (.exe).  A Single User license is $295 on either Windows (XP, Vista or 7) or Mac OS X (PPC or Intel processor) and includes royalty-free distribution rights for any number of protected products or licenses.  The tool includes a printed and PDF User Guide with popup help screens that allow anyone to protect and license an application without programming skills.

Visit the Excel Software web site for demonstration videos, detailed product information and secure online ordering of an integrated family of software protection and license management tools.
