I come from the Visual Studio 2010 environment on Windows. I use a product called CryptoLicensing to secure my .NET applications. It allows me to provide various licensing options - trial, limited functionality, etc..

I would like to develop for OS X and Windows using Real Studio. Does anyone have a recommendations on what to use for licensing Real Studio based applications? Maybe something similar to what Real Software uses for Real Studio licensing? I would like to provide subscription licenses as well.

Thank you.

Bob

There are a couple standard ones. Kagi and eSellerate are the big ones IMO. MindSpring is newcomer in the area and there's nothing stopping you from integrating PayPal or other eCommerce solutions into your app. Thomas Tempelmann did a presentation on this at the Atlanta Real Studio Summit. The video is available for paid members at http://www.arbp.org.

I personally use eSellerate in my commercial apps. Once you get past the initial learning curve it's not so bad. I have a tutorial and a better demo app in the ARBP source code repository than what comes with the eSellerate package (to access the repository only takes a free trial membership).

Thank you, BobK.

I had not heard of eSellerate. I'll check out their solution.
