Although there was a brief mention of Zygodact here on the list, I've
been informed that I should make a more formal announcement. They made
me do it. :) So without further ado, I present Zygodact.
Zygodact provides an easy, automated way to add a complete registration
serial key system to your Revolution standalone application or stack.
With only a single line of code, Zygodact will check to see whether your
application has been registered with a valid serial key. If not, it
displays a dialog requesting a user ID and registration key. If your
user cannot provide a valid registration, Zygodact gracefully shuts down
your software, disallowing access.
Zygodact does all the work for you. It generates any number of customer
serial keys for your application, and handles every aspect of requesting
and tracking a valid software registration on your user’s computer.
It does this by creating a matched set of stacks: a registration dialog
and a serial key generator, and optionally, a CGI stack for use on a
server. Every set of stacks is unique, and the registration dialog and
key generator you produce will never match any others. This gives you
the security of knowing that other developers who use Zygodact can never
generate the same serial keys and registration data as yours.
Each serial key is based on your user's name, or a user ID, or any other
data you choose. Once registered, your software is tied to the user's
computer, which means no one can copy your application to another
machine without invalidating the registration. For developers who may be
concerned about users sharing their registration keys, Zygodact also
returns registration information to your scripts, for use with an online
validation or tracking database.
With Zygodact you get:
- One-click generation of a unique registration substack and serial key
- Optional CGI stack and sample Revolution script for server use
- Complete registration management with only a single line of script
- Fully customizable registration dialog, so you can add your own logo
and look and feel
- The option to use your own software's preferences stack, or just let
Zygodact create one for you without any scripting
- Complete documentation with sample scripts, conveniently accessible
from the Help menu
- Serial key generation either individually or in bulk to produce any
number of keys with one click
A Zygodact installation can be set up in minutes with three simple steps:
1. Generate a unique set of stacks with one click.
2. Make the registration stack a substack of your main stack.
3. Add one line of script to your main stack.
That's it. Everything else is taken care of for you.
The Zygodact application is available for both Mac OS X and Windows. The
stacks it generates for use in your project can be used with any
platform Revolution supports, including Linux.
Zygodact can be purchased at the Runtime Revolution store
