Follow a few simple steps to test the capabilities of the Guardant ecosystem and protect your software product from illegal copying and use.
The licensing management system allows you to configure the software sales model, maintain a product catalog, customer orders, issue licenses, monitor them and remotely, update, block, etc.
The developer's tool kit contains the Guardant Protection Studio utility for protecting executable files and automatically binding them to a license, API with usage examples, license diagnostics and control tools, etc.
Open the product creation form in the Guardant Station system, configure the sales model and the composition of the license that you will sell to customers. Remember the numbers of the specified functions (components) — you will need them later.
Product creation form:
Launch the Guardant Protection Studio utility and log in using the login and password from the Guardant Station system. Select the executable files that you want to protect, and for each specify the number of the component created in the Guardant Station system at the stage of adding the product. As a result, protected versions of files and a service DLL will be created, which can be transferred to the software buyer.
Location of Guardant Protection Studio:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Guardant\Software Licensing Kit\bin
In addition to the protected files obtained in the previous step, other elements may be included in the software package. To go through the basic scenarios, you will need the License Wizard and the Guardant Control Center License Manager, located in the folder with Guardant SLK installed:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Guardant\Software Licensing Kit\redistribute\
Open the order creation form in the Guardant Station system, turn on the "Testing Mode", select the license type "Software License" and specify the previously created product. After confirming the order, copy the generated serial number and transfer the software to the buyer. The buyer will have to enter the number in the License Wizard to activate the software.
To make changes to the license on the buyer's PC, open the update order creation form, specify the serial number whose license needs to be updated, add a new product and/or edit the license restrictions in the existing one. Once the order is confirmed, the buyer will only have to download the update using the License Wizard.
