Any help would be greatlty appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

using the java security classes I create a private and public key. I ship

They take a couple of parameters and generate a key with the code I gave
them and the private key. The user then types in those parameters (Name &
Email Address) and the app unlocks.

I hope this helps, if you have any questions just ask.

Dear Kent,

Thanks for the reply ! Not sure how to use this key server (Is it paid ?) i
will explore more
The application should lock again after the evaluation period. It shouldnt
depend on a date for this logic as anyone can change the date and our logic
breaks.!

My key does not work with dates, but yours could. I just make a registry
entry on intallation of the date, you can use the preferences api for this.

You are right if you change the date then it breaks, but you could get the
date from a date server. There are other holes but I won't go too much into
details.

The share-it key server works by royalties, they get something like 15% but
for that they also take care of all the credit card stuff. So far I am happy
with them.But you could set up a key server no problem, I just decided
against it.
