Regattare Application Licensing Framework

Completed May 2014, developed in Visual Studio .NET 2008

Regattare licensing framework release 2.1 can be integrated into any Microsoft Visual Studio application to allow greater control over software asset distribution and activation responsibilities.


By plugging it's code base into your applications (VB .NET, C# .NET) you can ensure that your prospective audience can run your applications on a trial basis as well as register their intent to purchase.

Each build of an application will be unique and traceable to it's end user. What this means is that there is greater control over the management of license resources with web based verification of license certificates, which means more control over the application instances concerned.
