Concerns with LomaConsInstallKey
Why the trial key is not getting expired on the given date?
Elaborated Query: After creating a trial key by checking the check box and selecting a expiry date in the "Create Install Key" screen, the Install key is not getting expired on the given date and the app is still passing the validation as licensed. Why it is happening so?
What is the frequency of validating against server?
Elaborated Query: It is understood that the app has to contact the server (Business Service) in order to validate the entered license key. Now the question is, when does the app again contacts the server, is there any predefined set of intervals (Weekly/Monthly)? Because client might keep on changing the current date of his system in such a way, so that the license will never get expired until the app contact the server. How this is addressed??
Why client side app is self-generating a new license key and passing the validation?
Elaborated Query: After successful generation of Keyset and Install key and configuring the client’s application configuration file with “Keyset Name”(Ex:KetSet1) , “Keyset Password”, generated “Validation Code” and “Factor Code”…now when client’s application is running…the license will be validated against the server and generates the surety file, if the license key pass the validation then it displays the entered /passed license key.
But if a Keyset is created on another box with the same “Keyset” name like KeySet1, but with newly generated “Validation Code” and “Factor Code”… The client’s app passes the validation and displays a new license key (let’s assume it is a self-generated license key).
If the surety file is tampered or deleted then again client’s app prompts for the license key this time validation fails for the actual license key and passes for the self-generated license key, which is not supposed to be.
Can I expect a rectified solution for all the above concerns in the licensed version of LomaConsInstallKey?
