WinLicense offers several ways to register an application, giving total freedom to developers to decide which registration scheme prefer to register their applications. At first glance, it could be a bit confusing for new WinLicense user how to use WinLicense to register their protected applications.


Basically, an application can be register with a File key or a Registry key (the license names can be customized in the Registration panel). The protection strength is totally the same in either File or Registry keys, it's up to developer to select the type of key that he prefers for his application (or select both types if desired)


WinLicense also offers two other methods to license an application (Text Keys and SmartActivate keys) but at the end, Text and SmartActivate keys need to be converted into a File or Registry key programmatically (using the WinLicense SDK) to fully register an application.
