Locking Application Programs with RKUB Enabled

The following guides you how to lock application programs with RKUB enabled, using the shell system. This can be done using ElecKey Integrator. Also, refer to the ElecKey Integrator section for detailed information. If you wish to lock application programs using the KeyCheck API, refer to the KeyCheck API reference for detailed information about the functions.   


Recall that ElecKey utilizes only the Harddisk Key. When the end-user runs the protected program for the first time, the Harddisk Key is automatically built in which it contains only primary Key Properties. To enable RKUB, you must use the registration and licensing system that sends the License Key containing an encoded User ID to the end-user to activate the RKUB system.
