Excel Software launches AppProtect 2.0 to protect Mac or Windows software
Excel Software has launched AppProtect 2.0, which applies protection and a vendor-controlled or fully automated online-activation process to a compiled application to protect Mac or Windows software.
AppProtect wraps a Mac or Windows application with an activation process that requires a computer-unique password or serial number on first launch.
- Excel Software provides vendor accounts for the Safe Activation service or a vendor can self-host an activation server using Web Activation
- AppProtect 2.0 on Windows adds the ability to embed static data files into the executable
- For an application constructed from an interpreted language or requiring external data files, the unprotected files are are no longer accessible by the user
- Allows a secure licence to be applied and simplifies the user experience since the entire application is distributed as a single file
- Offers encryption and decryption features that enable Cycling 74 Max5 programmers to protect and license the software they create
- Supplements the standard protection available to all applications with five additional, optional layers of protection
- Each protection layer works independently so the developer can customise the protection for a specific application
- Can be used to protect a standard Mac OS X application (.app) or Windows executable (.exe)
- Includes a printed and PDF user guide with pop-up help screens that allow anyone to protect and license an application without programming skills
Excel Software has introduced Version 7.0 of its WinA&D software, which is said to support requirements management, system and software design, code generation and flexible report generation.
Delcam will demonstrate the 2015 version of its PowerSHAPE Pro CAD-for-CAM system for modelling for manufacture and reverse engineering at the Pacific Design & Manufacturing exhibition, which is due to be held in Anaheim, California, on 10–12 February.
CEDRAT is meeting the challenge of simulating the control of an induction machine using one of its tools: Portunus — a system simulator.
This paper from Integrated Engineering Software presents an overview of the focusing properties of magnetic quadrupoles and shows how beam spot size can be determined using arc segment emitters. It also shows how parametric variation of the excitation current can be used to determine the optimum level for minimum spot size at points along the beam axis.
This paper from Cedrat demonstrates the determination of cut-off frequencies of different proportional electromagnetic actuators in FE simulation under the consideration of eddy currents. The dynamic limits of different concepts thus can be compared in simulation already before the sampling process is started.
