Enterprise Edition Platform Activation

  • Platform license is based on a system key (based on network hardware and profile). So, a license cannot be used across different machines; each machine needs a different license.
  • The default 3-user license does not require activation.
  • License Activation:

App Protection

There are now 2 types of apps: normal apps and "protected" apps.

Normal Apps:
  • Normal apps are the current apps that behave as usual. 
  • Exported app definition is still stored in plain XML and works across both Community Edition and Enterprise Edition.
Protected Apps:
  • Protected apps are those that require an app license to function. 
  • "Protected App" (and expiry date, if applicable) is displayed in the Design App page.
  • Exported app definition is encrypted, and form definition in DB is also encrypted.
  • By default, an app license is tied to the specific app ID and the "Licensed To" string in the platform license. For example, if you have 2 machines with platform licenses issued to "Open Dynamics Inc", the same app license can be used on both. 
  • There is an optional feature to support app-level activation (i.e., apps can also be tied to the system key).
  • App licenses can also have expiry dates.
  • Protected apps with invalid/expired licenses will display a form to key in the app license.
  • Copy-Protected App Activation:
  • No labels
