Yes, I do want to use advanced capabilities.

It can do either.

I am using pw protection on all stacks, which is is working well. More important is the license activation and management because it is a subscription product—there is a single version which has a free, limited status or a full, paid status—the program needs the capability to shift to either. Also I need to control the installations of the program. It will be used in educational institutions, by individuals, sometimes in iffy locations (China) where I need to minimize piracy.

There are more advanced features that I want to take advantage of that seem to go beyond the capabilities of LiveCode script and my own personal abilities. It seems that LiveCode can work with SoftwareShield, but I don’t know where to begin, nor can I program anything besides LiveCode script.
