McWare USA has updated McSerialnumber Shareware Edition to version 3.0, which implements a new network copy protection and licensing API (application programming interface), as well as a hardware dependent Challenge Option.
The utility, which is compatible with Mac OS X and Mac OS 8.6-9.x, is targeted to developers who need to build a registration database solution and “Soft Dongle Type” libraries. Each library can be integrated into a new or existing software development project. While maintaining backward Metrowerks Codewarrior IDE and customer database compatibility, McSerialnumber Shareware Edition 3.0 now fully supports Apple’s Project Builder, GNU compilers, linkers, and Cocoa development.
A demo version is available for download at the McWare USA Web site. All the encoded or decoded “Soft Dongle Type” libraries are available after registering; a single user license is US$20.
