Generate License Keys (such as CD keys on Microsoft software)



Download Now 11Kb

It has come to our attention that many visitors have found this page from a search engine, and expect to find a whole bunch of pirate licence keys. Let me say from the outset, you won't find them here!

This is a piece of software for VB programmers who want to create a Licence Key for their own programs, before they allow them out into the world. Sorry guys- no Microsoft hacks here!

This class is loosely based on the one by Phil Fresle at http://www.freevbcode.com/ShowCode.ASP?ID=1639. Phil's class allows you to generate license keys, such as the CD keys on the case of most Microsoft software. The major difference in this implementation is that it includes an expiration date. In addition the KEYCODE is generated on the fly using the Soundex of the Username AND the Date.

Visual Basic Compact/Repair Access Database Utility
