Bonsoir Jacqueline,

Sounds great but I miss something:
How and why are you tied with Zygodact?

> registration dialog and key generator you produce will never match

> 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 generator
> - 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 <https:// 
> secure.runrev.com/products/related-software/zygodact/>, and is also  
> featured as part of the Megabundle deal currently available until  
> January 16.
