Let me start directly to the point
Is it possible to secure filemaker pro solution with a serial number and make only run on one pc?
Thanks a lot and your help is greatly appreciated!
Take a look at the get persistentID function. But what if the user's machine has a catastrophic failure?
Hey i just finished working on a solution for this ,but you need a webserver running wordpress to make it work.
Software License Manager — WordPress Plugins
That is the plugin you need for it. It will generate serial keys for you and provide you with an API as a hook . You then have to right a script to send an httppost request to the site to check if a license is valid or not.
i have a solid solution for this but it is only in german .
It is a FM Solution that generates Data for a key an send this to the developer ( Email) .
Developer sends back the valid serial.
You can also make it only for one PC and so on ..
most everything I've seen uses a communication with a website (via several means) to send and respond. Plug-in can help. relying on the computer where installed may not be the answer (I change computers!), but a login with the KEY needs to be validated without storing the value in the database.
Thanks a lot everyone for your helpful and useful answers,
Love you all!
