The provided KeyCheck API includes a set of libraries that allows you to integrate the software protection and licensing system into your application. The library currently supports Windows (XP, Vista, 2003, 7, 8 and 10) and macOS (10.6 Snow Leopard, 10.7 Lion, 10.8 Mountain Lion, 10.9 Mavericks, 10.10 Yosemite, 10.11 El Capitan, 10.12 Sierra, 10.13 High Sierra, 10.14 Mojave, 10.15 Catalina and 11 Big Sur).
