The API for Mac OS X provides the same set of functions and class libraries as in the Windows version, allowing you to easily reuse the same code to protect your application developed by Xcode using Objective-C or C++ languages. The KeyCheck API for Mac OS X is available in ElecKey MAX editions.
[+] Added Key Inspector for Mac OS X
Key Inspector for Mac OS X is a development tool that allows you to inspect the Key system implemented on the Mac machine. It searches all the Keys found on the machine and displays the status of the Key, including Program ID and Key Properties. The tool can be very useful during the development phase, allowing you to track the license status and see if the protected application works as expected.
[+] Added new licensing tool: ElecKey Team Manager
ElecKey Team Manager is the tool that allows you to manage the ElecKey license among your teams or departments. You can restrict or grant permission for different teams to use only certain tools and features of ElecKey, or for a limited time period. For example, the development team is given permission to use the protection and testing tools only, while the licensing team is given permission use to the license management tools. So the teams can collaborate without compromising the security of your software. ElecKey Team Manager is available in ElecKey Corporate license.
[+] Activation Server added Upgrade table
The Upgrade table allows you to create and manage the upgrades for your products. You can define the licensing properties for the upgrades, for example, adding modules/features, renewing subscriptions. And, from the Control page, you can easily upgrade the user account by selecting an upgrade from the list. The upgrade transactions will also be saved and displayed in the history log.
[+] Improved Activation Server to define program names
The Activation Server added a page to allow you to define program/module names. So you can easily refer to the programs by names, instead of Program IDs.
