How can I protect Flash files with your UniKey dongle?

You may use our UniKey Enveloper Utility to achieve this. You may protect flash player (adobe flash player) as Execute file and swf as data files. 

How do I implement UniKey Keys?

Let me explain how Unikey work for your software here. The very basic idea for UniKey protection is if there is a valid Unikey inserted, the software can work fine. If there no correct UniKey, software should not be executed.

We provide 2 method for software protection, i.e. Envelop and API. Envelop is a wrapper, and wrap your exe files so only correct UniKey can run the protected exe file. API protection means you need to embed UniKey APIs in your source code, and compile the application. This is more flexible, and can give you more options for protection. You can also combin these 2 methods together.

For e-learning software, UniKey can protect data files as well. For example,you have a exe file, and data files that read by this exe file. Unikey can protect exe file and encrypt these data files at the same time. After encryption, encrypted data files can not be read by other, and only protected exe file can read these encrypted data files.  

If I lost the password of my dongle, what should I do?

Please return the dongle to us, we can reset the dongle. Contact us for the price.  

Is UniKey dongle an Ease of Use dongle?

All UniKey API's are very simple but powerful. You can easily pick up UniKey API's without having a rich experience in programming. Thanks to the UniKey Enveloper you can protect software without any additional programming work. UniKey Consol provides an efficient solution to manage the software distribution and edit UniKey dongles.

In the SDK, we provide abundant samples in different programming languages, so that you can implement your own software copy protection and software license control schemes with ease.

What is the meaning of the light on the UniKey dongle?

If the light is flashing, it means either the UniKey dongle is working or the system did not install the driver properly. You can update/replace the driver manually. If the light is a constantly bright light, it means the UniKey dongle is ready to use.

What is 'driverless'?

The UniKey software protection dongle is driverless, which means you need not install a driver on the supported operating system. The operating system embeds the driver and installs the driver automatically. Since the most frequent problems that occur at the end-user side are driver installation,UniKey overcomes this problem perfectly.
