Storing license keys

  • Hello:

    I'm looking at using eSellerate to help sell my products and to
    generate license keys.  Perhaps I haven't dug deep enough into the
    documentation, or perhaps this question might be valid.

    How are others storing the registration license keys?  Is there a
    common place that a key should be stored, and is it saved as a file,
    or is the key injected somewhere inside the application file itself
    (perhaps not the best idea)?

    What I want to do is allow a user (either admin or a standard user if
    possible) be able to enter in the registration info into the
    application, and this will be saved so any user can use the
    application without having to re-enter the license info for each new
    user.

    Regards,

    Chad

    You'll probably end up saving this file in one of these locations:

    /Library/Application Support/
    /Library/Preferences
    /Users/Shared

    I'm not sure this directly answers your question, but take a look at
    the AquaticPrime framework for help with licensing and such.

    Free, open source, etc.
