[+] KeyCheck for Windows Mobile added support for first storage card

The KeyCheck SDK for Windows Mobile added the ability to create and detect the Key on the first storage card of the Windows Mobile device. This supports ARM CPU only.

[+] Added automatic time correction in the Key system

The system uses the Internet time synchronization to correct the date stamp in the Key automatically in case of the "Invalid date" error. This error may occur in the time-based protection (e.g. evaluation, subscription) when the system clock is set backward to the date before the most recent date stamp in the Key.

[+] Improved EXE Scramble shell protection to support Unicode parameters

[+] Improved ElecKey startup time

The improvement helps to load the ElecKey tools (e.g. ElecKey Integrator, LicenseKey Manager,...) faster that may be an issue on some machine.


[+] Added Registration ID extension with current license status

The option enables the protected application to provide the Registration ID with an extension that includes information about the current license status from the Key on the user machine.

[+] LicenseKey Manager added feature to display user license status

You can enter the extended Registration ID with current license status into LicenseKey Manager, and click 'Check and get User License Status'. The user license status (e.g. license mode, limits, and enabled Module IDs) will be displayed in the Key Properties pane.

[+] System improvement against the error "Invalid Agent!"

The improvement resolved the rare and random occurrence of the error "Invalid Agent!" on some user machine when starting the protected application.

[!] Fixed bug related to the template file in ElecKey Integrator

The fix solved the problem that ElecKey Integrator sometimes does not create the end-user utilities as defined in the template file.

[+] ElecKey and UpdateShield fully tested to support Windows 10


[+] Added Licensed Item IDs

Licensed Item IDs provides a list of Item IDs (1 -224) that allows you to enable/disable for item-based licensing. For example, your application may provide a large set of items such as font types, images, languages, etc. You can assign a different Item ID to each of the items. You can also provide license upgrades to add more items through Item IDs.

[+] Added advanced Key Data

The advanced Key Data allows you to use Key Data to store custom licensing properties you may define such as upgradable values or credits for your application. With support for string addition, you can also provide license upgrades through Key Data. For example, you can issue a License Key to add the new Key Data to the Key on the user machine.

[+] Added KeyCheck Qt Library

The KeyCheck Qt Library includes a set of libraries for Qt that allows you to integrate the software protection and licensing system into your application. The KeyCheck Qt Library currently supports Windows and Mac OS X.

[+] Added switching ElecKey licenses

You can now switch between ElecKey licenses in case you want to activate multiple licenses of the same ElecKey edition on a machine.

[+] Improved KeyCheck SDK for Mac OS X

The improvement fixes the issue that the protected application cannot activate license on some Mac machine.
