What are SmartActivate keys?

SmartActivate Keys, also known as SmartKeys, are a special type of license keys accepted by WinLicense. The SmartKey appears in the following manner:


Name: John Smith

Company: J.S. Software Development

Custom Data: MODE: Advanced

Key: 286D0394-87716B52-BC59FA9A-CAA8DE87-4881A155-BF450169-C590


It is very popular now to use such keys when almost all registration data comes as plaintext and the key has a checksum for data and license restrictions. The SmartKey is quite short and contains only printable characters so it will be easy to copy/paste for sending through e-mail, instant messengers etc.
