Hello all,

Today we released the setupPROTECT SDK (sPSDK) for SetupBuilder 6 Developer
Edition. It's free of charge for registered SetupBuilder Developer Edition
users with a current subscription. The sPSDK product is not available to
users of a SetupBuilder education and charity license!

the product and you have not received your notification within the next 18
hours, please let us know.

The setupPROTECT SDK (sPSDK) is a small, fast, and efficient software
development kit specially designed for serial number and subscription key
generation. The sPSDK is the "compiler" for your serial numbers or
subscription keys that your development team will use to quickly and easily
create the licenses you require. Designing a good software protection scheme
will extend your software protection lifecycle, allowing you the software
vendor to benefit more from increased software sales.

The sPSDK lets you dynamically generate serial numbers and subscription keys

* Serial-Number-Key Protection

SetupBuilder's built-in Serial-Number-Key Protection feature allows
developers to add serial number functionality to the installer. Developers
can choose to generate any number of serial numbers for any number of
products. Serial numbers can represent unique products, or sets of products.
The result of this function allows developers to create rules that can
manage all aspects of the installation based on rights granted by the serial
number the end-user has entered. Then at runtime, your user will be required
to enter a valid serial number in order to continue with the installation.

Many developers integrate security both in their software product, as well
as their installation in order to minimize its use by unauthorized

* Subscription-Key Protection

With the powerful Subscription-Key Protection feature you can quickly
generate "Subscription Keys" to protect your installations and updates. This
technology is well suited for software subscription services in which the
end-users subscribe, for instance on a monthly, quarterly, semi-annually,
etc. basis.

At the end of the subscription period, end-users will have the option of
extending the subscription or simply continuing their current version. But
end-users will no longer be able to utilize product updates released after
the subscription expiration date/version. With setupPROTECT, the
subscription renewal is easy and simple. You only have to send a new
"Subscription Key" to your end-user.

This sPSDK tool is not part of the standard SetupBuilder installation and
has to be requested separately. Send your request to:
