Licensing and segmentation questions may be very confusing, and when the time comes to implement a protection system in a software product, many developers face a serious dilemma of making one on their own or using a third-party solution. For time-saving purposes, the majority choose the latter, so if it’s your choice as well, you should definitely learn a bit more about Instance Monitor Library!
Instance Monitor Library is a cross-platform dynamic library (DLL) that can be integrated into your project to prevent unauthorized users from launching multiple instances (more than the license permits) of your software product in their local network. The library provides the easiest way of controlling the number of product instances running in a network, prevents new instances from being launched, closes the already running instances and even warns users about the alleged violation of license terms. The software is also capable of generating a complete list of systems violating the license agreement, which can be then provided to the admin of the network for further investigation. Instance Monitor Library is a great sales booster, since it makes the work of unauthorized copies nearly impossible. The software is not detected by any anti-virus tools and can be integrated into a software product very quickly. Instance Monitor Library works with all platforms supporting the DLL format and comes with integration tutorials for VB and Delphi.
